Charity: please contribute with a click a day

This time a post that is not realy related to running. As I had to update the layout of my blog I added a link to Polska Akcja Humanitarna. I promote them where possible since I got to know them 15 years ago travelling trough Poland. By know they are actively involved in humanitarian aid to children all over the world including for example Birma.

Everyone can contribute to their work with very little effort by going to their Pajacyk site. Press the green button on the belly of the wooden puppet and PAH will receive a small contribution from one of their sponsors. You can only click once a day.

TIP: You can of course make the pajacyk page your homepage so you are reminded to click every time you open your browser.
BETTER TIP: I can imagine you want to hold on to your current homepage. Than you might consider using a scheduled task. Open control panel > scheduled tasks and use the wizzard to make a task. This will enable you the have your browser open automatically at, for example, a fixed time.
After using the wizard you have to don one thing manually. Open teh task and you will see the following text in the run field: "C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\iexplore.exe". (or something similar if you have a different browser).
Add a blank space and the link to the so you end up with: "C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\iexplore.exe" (see screendump below). Otherwise you browser will open with you usual homepage.
My tasks opens the site every day around noon, a fitting and useful reminder for my lunch.

If you want to test if the string is correct. Go to start > run and past the string in the text field and click OK.
Good luck and thanks for helping with a click a day....
