Pets or Food
http://petsorfood.com/
Founded by a member of Mensa, the high IQ society, Pets or Food is dedicated to bringing together people and animals.
In 1987, Sidney Zwibel was working as an animal disposal technician at a Humane Society in Lincoln Nebraska.
He felt that all the animals he was responsible for euthanising were being wasted, and the act itself was irresponsible and immoral in the light of all the people going hungry across America.

Save the Guinea Worm Foundation
The rare Guinea Worm faces extinction. Yet despite growing public support for environmentalism and preservation of endangered species, few people will speak out on the Guinea Worm's behalf.
In fact, the United Nations and several prominent U.S. agencies are leading a quiet campaign to eradicate this dwindling species forever from the planet.
Is the Guinea Worm the world's most endangered species?

The Gematriculator
http://homokaasu.org/gematriculator/
Basically, Gematria is searching for different patterns through the text, such as the amount of words beginning with a vowel. If the amount of these matches is divisible by a certain number, such as 7 (which is said to be God's number), there is an incontestable argument that the Spirit of God is ever present in the text. Another important aspect in gematria are the numerical values of letters: A=1, B=2 ... I=9, J=10, K=20 and so on. The Gematriculator uses Finnish alphabet, in which Y is a vowel.
