Just last week I came across this awesome website that allows you to generate money for your favourite charity by just searching the web! I am constantly on google and yahoo searching for irrevelant things at 1am but now I can resume my search while raising funds for Animal-Kind International! It is so simple! Instead of googling, simply go to http://www.goodsearch.com/ and follow these simple instructions:
- On the GoodSearch homepage, choose from thousands of organizations or add your favorite cause to our list.
- Search the Internet just like you normally would — the site is powered by Yahoo!, so you'll get high-quality search results.
- Fifty percent of the revenue generated from the sponsored search is shared with the charity, school or nonprofit organization of your choosing.
Where does the money come from you might ask??
Goodsearch states:Search engines make most of their money from companies that pay an advertising fee when users click on links during a search. At GoodSearch, we've patented a way to track and direct these search-generated proceeds to charities. In other words, a portion of advertiser dollars (and not your own!) earned as a result of your search, are now passed along to the organization you've chosen to support."
So next time you need information for your projects or desperately need to know who got kicked off "Dancing With The Stars" head on over to GoodSearch.com and know that you are supporting a charity with little or no effort to you!
