9Lives cat food wants to donate up to one million meals to animal shelters and all we have to do is watch a funny video. They’re only at 15,000 donations right now, which baffles me. The Internet loves cat videos, especially funny ones, and we love freebies. I imagine we can get them up to a million in around 41 minutes.
Make sure to stick around after the video and enter the code shown to make your view count.

If you have a dummy Facebook account (come on, please tell me you do…) or don’t mind linking apps to your personal account, you should consider donating $1 to AdoptAClassroom.org for free thanks to 3M. From what I gather, 3M wants to donate $25,000 and so far they’re only at $656. That needs a few more zeros.

I’m starting to understand why my parents finally got us a dog.
Land O’Lakes is currently running a promotion through May 1 where they will donate eight free meals to Feeding America in exchange for every recipe that is repinned from their Pinterest board. Now if only there was a way for them to cook me a meal as well in exchange for some pins. I think I had my 400th peanut butter and jelly sandwich of 2013 last night.

Every Facebook like will earn a free Sara Lee sandwich donation to a local food pantry that services those in need. You’ll also be able to print a $1 Sara Lee coupon, so you get to help somebody and save money. Does it get much better than that?

A while back I had the idea to create a site where I would post ways to donate to charities for free. But it recently dawned on me that it was a stupid idea. Not because of the subject, but because why would I start a separate freebie-esque site when I already have a huge one here? So starting today, I’m going to post the occasional free charity or donation offer on HIF.
Today’s offer is a free breakfast donation to a hungry child from Kellogg’s. They’ll donate one free meal, up to a million, for every share, tweet, pin, or video watch. Right now they’ve only reached 162,000 meals, so let’s make that number skyrocket.
If you’ve been itching for some free Schiff MegaRed Omega-3 krill oil, then you seriously have some oddly specific cravings. Are you sure you’re not pregnant?
This is available to the first 100,000 people to request it on Facebook. As a bonus, if all samples are request, Schiff will make a $100,000 donation to the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.
If you have trouble with the form not appearing, try switching browsers. I had to move from Safari to Chrome.
If you’re a frequent customer of Starbucks, you might want to check out Google Offers today. They have a $10 Starbucks gift card for only $5. To make sweeten the pot, for every card sold Google will donate $3 to OFN for the Create Jobs for USA Fund, up to $3 million dollars. My napkin math says that’s a good deal. It also says hello and asks how your family has been lately.
I think I’ve already had too much coffee today.
EDIT: This contest has ended.
Social Goodies is a new daily deal site about to launch. In celebration, they are holding a contest where they’ll give away 100 free $50 Target gift cards. In addition, for every person who enters the contest, they’ll make a $1 donation to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund.
I was fully prepared to make fun of them because the last thing we need is another Groupon clone. Yet how can I ridicule a site giving away $5,000 in prizes and making donations to the Red Cross? Turns out I actually have some of those “standards” everybody is always talking about!
This may be the first post for HIF that I wish I didn’t have to write. You’ve seen the pictures and videos by now. I’m barely qualified to make self-deprecating and absurdist jokes, so when it comes to the recent tragedy in Japan, there’s not much I can add that hasn’t already been said. However, there’s actually a freebie related to this calamity.
AT&T and Verizon are both offering free long distance calls and texts to Japan for the next few weeks. AT&T is offering free calls and texts from the US until March 31 while Verizon is doing the same through April 10.
Chances are if you’re making calls and texts to Japan, then you know somebody there. Google has set up a Crisis Response page that includes a free “people tracker” tool for locating missing loved ones. I hope that no Hiffer has to use it, but it’s there if needed.

EDIT: Just go ahead and smack me now. Link added.
You can either get a free $1 check from Miller High Life or donate said dollar to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. This is cool, I’ve never been sponsored by a company before. But now I can say HIF is sponsored by Miller High Life!
The fine print says residents of AK, AZ, CA, CO, DE, DC, FL, IA, KS, MT, MS, NE, NV, NH, NM, OK, SC, WI, and WY can also get a $1 off Miller High Life coupon. I don’t know if that means these residents aren’t eligible for the $1 check or if they simply get an extra option on how to get $1. If you live in one of these states, leave a comment and let us know what your choices were!
