I don’t IM much these days due to work load, but I still do every now and then.  When I do I primarily use Windows Live Messenger (aka MSN).

Well, I just saw this program today and figured, why not.  Just by adding a few characters to my personal message, Microsoft will donate some amount to the charity of my choice (from a list of charities).  I’m sure it’s not a ton of money being donated per IM conversation, but since it doesn’t take any more effort on my part, I might as well have my IMs make a difference.  It would be nice to see how much is being donated to each cause.  I wonder if that is something Microsoft would be willing to share?

So, anyway, if you’re a WLM/MSN user, why not take 60 seconds that could end up donating at least a few bucks to some worthy cause?
