GoodSearch and GoodShop

I just learned about GoodSearch and hope you will check it out. Started in 2005, GoodSearch is a search engine which donates 50-percent of its revenue to the charities and schools designated by its users. It's a simple and compelling concept. You use GoodSearch exactly as you would any other search engine. Because it's powered by Yahoo!, you get proven search results. The money GoodSearch donates to your cause comes from its advertisers — the users and the organizations do not spend a dime! As of today, they are 79,044 participating non profits and schools that you can choose to donate.

In 2007, GoodSearch was expanded to include GoodShop, an online shopping mall of world-class merchants dedicated to helping fund worthy causes across the country. Each purchase made via the GoodShop mall results in a donation to the user's designated charity or school – averaging approximately 3% of the sale, but going up to 20% or even more.

This precious little bundle nearly died before she was correctly diagnosed and sent to the University of Michigan for cardiac surgery. Her grandmother told me how the Ronald McDonald House made it possible for the mother to be with her baby throughout the hospitalization. Now she uses GoodSearch and GoodShop when she can to support them.

Check it out, I bet there is a non-profit charity you want to support.

Thank you for passing on the infomation about GoodSearch and GoodShop. My family was so blessed by the Ronald McDonald House of West Michigan that we want to do any little thing we can to bless them back. And may God bless you, too for sharing this story.
