If you already have Bing as your homepage, you have nothing to lose. Go to that page and click the button. Your homepage does not change but you've done something good.
If it was already the homepage, they should double the donation.

I think to make this a more fair deal MS should give 30% of their profits to charity.

How about 100%? They can be the next GM, Chrysler, AIG, and BP.

Seriously, both Microsoft and Bill Gates personally have done quite a lot charity. In fact, I believe there are not many companies in this world of ours donating more money.

EDIT: Never mind. Didn't realize I had to give them my email and all that jazz. I feel bad for not doing it, but I get enough junk emails.
I agree and I am just cynical about this - is this the way to get bigger ratings than Google?

I do know that Bill Gaes does give loads to charity, but don't you think that the way they have offered $3 for every new customer just seems like a publicity stunt, with no other aim to to hook customers.

Not much difference than NBC holding Katrina telethons or CNN holding Oil Spill telethons to make advertising money.

Or companies that donate to breast cancer research for buying their product or service.

Personally, I'm willing to participate and give my email address to any publicity stunt at least trying to do some good, only exception being companies whose products and / or principals I do not accept.

Well with millions of people online, the possibility for everyone participating and MS honoring the deal could give a lot of money to schools. Most companies have an amount of money they donate each year because it is good, also helps their image and can lower taxes to be paid. Having an open ended $3 per person with no gaurentee of any limit is exeptional no matter what amount they eventually do pay out.
