Picky shoppers only choosing the most perfectly-shaped and blemish-free produce at grocery stores has led to a tremendous amount of food waste. To illustrate how not-so-perfect fruits and vegetables are still perfectly edible, Hasbro has created a misshaped version of Mr. Potato Head to serve as a spokesperson.
The Slo Mo Guys create some of the most YouTube-y videos out there. Their shtick involves shooting and smashing things and filming them in slow motion, which is what online videos are all about really (besides cats).
This is awesome. Alvin Garcia Flores had been born without an arm, and the folks at Limbitless Solutions printed up and provided him with one in a presentation before his entire school.
In a savvy PR maneuver, today Mark Zuckerberg used the birth of his daughter Max to advertise to the world the fact that he’s decided to give away 99% of his Facebook shares (roughly $45 billion today) to charity (over the course of the rest of his life, not all at once). It sounds angelic, but it will probably end up…
Every year Ikea’s Soft Toys for Education campaign partners with UNICEF and Save the Children to help raise funds for schools, supplies, and other educational endeavors. And since it’s all about helping children, this year Ikea actually had them design the plush toys being sold for the campaign.
The digging of wells in Africa has often been thought of as the solution to helping rural women walking to get water, but they may cause more harm than good.
Forget the sun. Forget the beach. Hang out with us and watch more than 140 video games being speedrun to benefit Doctors Without Borders during the 2015 Summer Games Done Quick Marathon.
Most of us are spending an inordinate amount of time on our smartphones, those glowing devices that are always by our side, so why not use some of that time to help others and promote worthy causes? Here are four ideas you might want to consider—and you can always get back to your News Feed or high score challenge…
I am OK, but Nepal is not. The part of the country that got hit the hardest is the remote Gorkha district. Many small towns and villages are still not included in any government search and rescue effort. This is one of many stories from the area: One day, six volunteers and two villages.
Since 1993, 20,000 people have died in the Mediterranean Sea while fleeing war-torn Africa for the safety of European shores. Now, the world's first private maritime search and rescue operation is doing everything it can to help them. And they've already saved thousands of lives.
Some of the most powerful people in the tech world are dumping buckets of ice water on their heads. No, they haven't lost it. They're doing it for charity.
There are a lot of dumb, pointless apps out there that make it hard to put our smartphones down. That's what makes Unicef's new project for World Water Month doubly brilliant—it raises funds to provide clean drinking water to needy kids, by encouraging smartphone users to take a break from the touchscreen. Sounds like…
U2's new song Invisible—which featured in a Super Bowl ad—is free on iTunes until 23:59 EST today to support HIV and AIDS charity. For every download, Bank of America will donate $1 to Red.
We toss around likes as if they were high fives on the Internet. As affirmation of people doing the right thing. As oh hey look cool. As being silly and ironic. As the digital form of support.

Rob Ginnivan just performed a batshit fitness publicity stunt. The Australian just ran a half-marathon on a generator-powered treadmill floating on a hot air balloon. Unconventional! At least it's for charity.
It's about to get a lot harder to dodge the charity you've been so studiously avoiding. The NYTimes reports that the Salvation Army is testing a new way of collecting digital donations this year: Santas with Sqaure.
Think of LuminAID as the TOMS shoes of... electricity. Each light is rugged, waterproof, solar-powered, inflatable (floating light!) and only $25. But each purchase also nets a LuminAID for a needy stranger without electricity. Gadget awww.
