Give A Little With GoodSearch

Posted by @ 7:53 pm

You see them on the street corner, at train stations, out in the cold or blistering heat, even in your local McDonalds – collections for charity – be it for the blind, the environment, for cancer or any other number of illnesses and problems that may be facing our world today. Gone are the days where we may have to scuttle past collectors, heads down, murmuring something about “no change…sorry” – GoodSearch is now on the scene!

The premise? Search and raise money for you favourite charity – as simple as that! Brother and sister, Ken and JJ Ramberg founded GoodSearch in 2005, “when the two of them considered what even a fraction of the $6 billion generated by search engine advertisers annually could do if it were directed towards organizations trying to make this world a better place.”

Powered by Yahoo! GoodSearch is like any other search engine, except 50% of revenue is donated to the schools and charities chosen by users. You won’t pay a cent to use the search, the advertisers do!

Everyone… go to the site, select a charity you would like to support and start searching. Can’t find your favourite charity? Add them to the list and away you go. The more you search the more money you raise.

The best way to understand this concept and site better is to use it. It takes absolutely nothing to give! Considering the sheer number of search queries conducted daily, it is possible, even to the most pessimistic of us, that GoodSearch are onto a good thing!
