I went to Snopes.com to read about some websites.

I had started discussions and recommended that people click on Freerice.com, and thought I had better double check my facts. Snopes gives it a "true".I also learned that the same person was behind Poverty.com and The Hunger Site, where you can click for six different types of charities and earn money for them from advertisers. These are not scam sites. Click away, and do good online.

Yes some are actually legitimate sites and they do what they say. I sometimes do go to those sites and do my part. It's important that I don't let the fact that there are so many scams going around interfere with the fact that some actually are doing things right:)

Yes, we can get cynical if we are scammed a lot.

Hhmmm.. This is interesting. Well later I’ll try to visit this site and check how it works. It interests me when you have to go site after site and while doing this, you’re earning at the same time. Sometimes I search for this kind of sites in some search engines when I’m out of things to do online only to find a good site that pays well and will entertain you at the same time.

Snopes is a wonderful resources online. Thank you for letting the myLot community know that you checked the validity of the amazing Freerice.com site. Not only is it an interesting charity, but it is also a good vocabulary builder.

Have you heard about www.goodsearch.com. It is a charity search engine powered by Yahoo. Every time you search or shop you select your charity of choice and they receive a $. It works! I work for a non-profit wolf sanctuary and we received a $45 check from them in December! Like wolves? Check out our 25 year old sanctuary and conservation site at www.WolfHaven.org. Sorry - gotta plug them because they are doing great things for this endangered species.

Oh yes, Snopes is a great resource! And I love freerice.com, I discovered it a few weeks ago and have been absolutely addicted, earning thousands of grains a day when I can. They sure come up with some obscure words around level 40 though!

It would be terrible if there was no snopes.com! I have friends who get mail from people who constantly send things that are meant to misinform and frighten the public... I just send them to snopes!
