Here’s an easy way to raise money for your favorite cause. Just start using Yahoo! powered GoodSearch.com as your search engine and they’ll donate about a penny to your favorite cause every time you do a search!
In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall, GoodShop.com, where you can shop at more than 2,600 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the charity or school of your choice. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to your cause!
You can also enroll in the GoodDining program. Eat at over 10,000 participating restaurants nationwide and you can earn up to 6% of every dollar spent on the meal as a donation for your charity or school.
Simply do good.
That’s the phrase we have up on our wall here at Goodsearch. Why? Well, because doing good can be simple. And a simple act, combined with those of the millions of other people on Goodsearch, can make a big difference in the world — it can feed a child, help find a cure, plant a tree, create a home for a stray dog, and do so much more. Helping a cause you care about and making the world a better place can be something you do every day — not only when you have time to volunteer or extra money to donate. This is what Goodsearch is all about. We give you the ability to turn your everyday actions into simple ways to support and raise funds for your favorite cause.
Join the movement!
Goodsearch started as an idea…and now it has turned into a movement. More than 15 million people used Goodsearch last year to support more than 100,000 non-profits and schools. Since 2006, Goodsearch users have raised more than $9 million, participated in over 1.1 billion charitable actions, and have truly made a difference.
How has the money been used?
Organizations have used the money raised from Goodsearch to do everything from supporting cancer research, to buying books for a local library, to helping find homes for stray dogs, to cleaning up local rivers. The National Inclusion Project, for example, which helps children with disabilities, has used the money its supporters have raised through Goodsearch to send more than 400 kids to summer camp.
So, how can I simply do good?
It’s easy. Just pick a cause you care about – we work with large national organizations like The American Cancer Society and The Nature Conservancy, to local ones like high schools and animal shelters (if your cause isn’t listed, you can add it here. Then, as you go about your daily activities, you’ll be raising money for that cause – at no cost to you! You can watch the dollars add up right here on the site. And, as you share your actions with your friends, you can inspire them to also make a difference every single day.
The three primary ways you can earn money are through searching the Internet, shopping online and dining out (but keep your eye on us – this is just the beginning!) Here’s a quick explanation of each of them:
- Goodsearch: Search the Internet with our patent-protected, Yahoo!-powered search engine (just like you’d search on any other search engine), and we’ll donate about a penny for nearly all searches to your selected cause.
- Goodshop: Shop at one of our more than 2,800 participating stores (from Amazon to Zazzle) and a percentage of what you spend will be donated to your cause at no cost to you. Oh, and by the way, there’s a big added bonus here too. Goodshop lists more than 100,000 coupons and deals so you could save money while doing good!
- Gooddining: Dine at one of our 10,000 participating restaurants around the country and a percentage of what you spend will go to your cause – again at no cost to you.
- Good-to-go add-ons: The GoodShop To-Go Button, GoodApp Toolbar and Goodsearch Plug-in all install in less than 30 seconds and help you to earn donations for your favorite cause when you shop and search even when you don’t visit Goodsearch first!
