You may want to sit down ... are you ready? Okay, here it is: You can save the world by watching CAT VIDEOS!

We know what you're probably saying: "I'm already watching cat videos each and every day, but haven't saved the world yet. How could this even be possible?"

CharityAnimalTV released this video above with an innovative concept -- one that employs a major staple of the Internet with a bit of slacktivism to create change.
