You can help others during the pandemic at no expense to you and here’s how. As I was going through my morning routine, sitting on the balcony with my sweet kitty, I thought about the day ahead and started the daily thought process of prioritizing what projects I need to do before my work is done for the day.
As promoting my site on social media is one of the things I do each day, I thought about adding posts about the two places I contribute points to help, in my own little way, with the pandemic without spending a dime of my own money. This is done through two services that I use every day. They’re so easy, I don’t know why I haven’t posted this sooner but if you want to help others during the pandemic, you’re invited to continue reading to learn how you can contribute without spending a dime.
Give with Bing Searches
When you sign up for a Microsoft account, you earn free Microsoft Reward Points for gift cards. You do this with your searches through the use of Bing search engines. In my online work, I do enough searching to get approximately one $5 Amazon Gift Card per month. That pays for a little under half of my monthly Amazon Prime subscription, so that makes me happy.
Of course, there are a lot of different types of gift cards to select from. In addition, you can also enter contests with your points, among a few other fun things. It’s literally a no-brainer once you get signed in and select where you want your points to go. Then, the rest is automatically processed every time you perform a search using the Bing search engine. Neat – huh? I think so. I wish I’d learned earlier in life how fast “little points” add up.
However, when Covid came along, Bing offered the option for its members to contribute the search points to the CDC Foundation. As you see below, I choose to contribute the points I’m accumulating towards the CDC Foundation.
If you already have a Microsoft account, all you need to do is visit your account and switch your points to “GIVE Mode”. (See “Give Mode is ON” in the image above).
