Now you can give to charity just by watching cat videos
Get your fluff fix and save the world.
Do you devote the better part of your workday to watching cute animal videos? Don’t worry, I won’t tell your supervisor. But if you have any residual guilt about about frittering away your precious time on the planet in this fashion, consider tabbing over to CharityAnimalTV.
The idea is simple: A fraction of the ad revenue generated by playing a YouTube video goes to the content creator, and each adorable CATv clip is pegged to a specific charity that will receive that money. In other words, your favorite timesuck just became a noble calling:
Ready to raise some cash for worthy causes? I’d get started with these two gems: a compilation of startled cats and footage of a bunch of dogs really enjoying a fountain. The first benefits the Snow Leopard Trust, while the second boosts Paws With Purpose.
Feels good to be giving back, doesn’t it?
