Starting this weekend, users can help raise money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines by simply surfing the Web.

Tab for a Cause, the organization behind a Web browser extension that donates money to charity every time users open a new tab on their browsers, said it will donate an extra $0.10 for every user who signs up for the service between Saturday and Tuesday.

The campaign is set to coincide with Giving Tuesday, a new holiday meant for users to give to charities after excessive shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The money donated by Tab for a Cause will be given to Action Against Hunger's Typhoon Haiyan fund.

The way Tab for a Cause works is by showing users ads every time they open a new tab on their browsers, instead of just a blank page.

The money generated from those advertisements -- fractions of a cent for each tab -- are then donated to various charities, including Water.org, Human Rights Watch and the International Peace Institute as well as Action Against Hunger.

Tab for a Cause has been around since late 2011 and has about 30,000 users. Users have helped the nonprofit organization donate nearly $20,000 to date simply by surfing the Web.
