GoodSearch – search the internet and raise money at the same time :)

I just heard about a way we can raise money while we do our searches on the internet and it sounds like a brilliant idea to me. Here’s what they say on their site:

“Last year search engines generated close to $8 billion in revenue from advertisers. We’ve developed a way to direct some of that money to the causes you care about most. It’s easy … every time you search the Internet at, your charity or school earns money and the more you search, the more they make. Add up the money generated from all your searches and those done by the millions of other people who we hope will use GoodSearch, and we can make a real difference to the people and causes that need funds most.”

Sound’s great, doesn’t it? I know you’re nodding right now 🙂

So, here’s what they need you to do:

  • 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 advertisers is shared with the charity, school or nonprofit organization of your choosing.
