Windows Live Messenger gives money to charity for every IM sent

im making a difference

It's true !

The campaign initiated by Windows Live Messenger™ is called im making a difference .
Every time you start a conversation thru i'm, a small amount of money is given to charity from your behalf.

You can join this campaign and make a difference by downloading Windows Live™ Messenger (for free) . You must have version 8.1 to be able to participate !

After installing it and such, from your Contacts window, click the arrow next to your (display) name and select "Options".

Now, next to your name, type one of the following codes below for the cause you'd like to support, and click OK.

donating to charity

*red+u American Red Cross
*bgca Boys & Girls Clubs
National AIDS Fund
*mssoc National Multiple Sclerosis Society
*sierra Sierra Club
Susan G. Komen for the Cure
*unicef The US fund for UNICEF

I think it's a great idea ! Not only they are winning popularity but they are also helping people by donating money to American Red Cross, National AIDS Fund and so on.
Now, I didn't find how much they are donating per conversation, but alltogether, we must be speaking about millions.

So ... start chatting via Windows Live Messenger™ and make a difference ! :)
