We select new charitable causes and feature them in Prime Publishing's 60+ email newsletters, reaching over 4 million subscribers. Readers can help contribute by simply clicking the links in the Clicks for a Cause section of the newsletter. For every click to these sections, Prime Publishing will make a financial contribution to the selected charity. The more clicks, the larger the donation! Find out more about this charitable initiative by checking out our Clicks for a Cause page here.
