Click a mouse to help charity.

ONLINE volunteers want to change the world in the comfort of their pyjamas between Christmas day and new year - a period they've called "twixtmas".

They are hoping to help feed a starving person, fight cancer and save rainforests with a click of the mouse.

Because online advertisers pay for free "click-throughs" it won't cost users a penny and two Welsh-based campaign groups are backing the scheme.

They are Cardiff's Help from Home and the twixtmas campaign, championed by Andy Green, from Barry Island.

They are asking people to do five good things during the five days between Christmas and new year to make the world a better place.

Highlighting their cause with a rehearsal pyjama party and their laptops were Daniel Tyte, 29, Caroline Holmes, 27, and Rachel Mortell, 24, in the window of Elephant Beds, Cowbridge Road East, Cardiff.

Mike Bright, founder of Help from Home, said: "People complain about not having enough time, and yet this is the season for goodwill, so combining the opportunities of making it easy for people to micro volunteer and take advantage of the time available during twixtmas seemed a great partnership."

Anyone interested in mini-volunteering opportunities that cost nothing and take minutes, should visit either helpfromhome.org or twixtmas.com
