If you use Windows Live Messenger (MSN Messenger) or Microsoft Live Mail (Hotmail) to chat with your friends and family or send emails then you might have noticed that some will have a green color i’m symbol either infront of their display name or behind their display name.
Have you ever wondered on why they have this? Well here is the answer for that, When you have that particular symbol and start a conversation or send an email Microsoft shares a portion of their advertising revenue with some of the world’s most effective social cause organizations 🙂 (like UNICEF, Red Cross, National AIDS Fund, etc). Meaning the more you chat the more Microsoft gives!!! Isn’t this great?
How can you join and add this i’m symbol in your messenger or hotmail?
Download and Install Windows Live Messsenger, Sign in to the messenger, click on the i’m tab follow the instructions and choose your cause. Once you are done choosing then start chatting, the more you chat the more Microsoft gives.
Sign up for a Live mail or Hotmail account, Choose your cause and send as much emails as possible 🙂
