Breaking News!


This just in: according to CNN, donations to the 4 largest charities in the world dropped 11% last year! 11%!

So, to raise awareness and get some charitable happenings going, they’ve issued an iReport challenge!

Here’s what you can do: By 3 p.m. EST today, contribute $5 to the cause of your choice. Check out CNN’s list of ways to help, or pick another organization that is important to you.

Then tell us about it. You can post your response in the comments here, tweet what you did with the hashtag #BeAHero or send us an iReport about your experience. Which organization did you choose? Why?

Check back here in the evening, when we will post a roundup of the most standout daily heroics.

What better reason do you need to activate your inner activist and get out there and donate?
And though we might be a little biased, there just happens to be a great little charitable Alliance right under your nose. But really, every charity deserves it, so if you were looking for an excuse to go and out help someone, just mosey on down to CNN.com.
