Use GoodSearch to Support a Good Cause

Posted by grizzlymedia on December 2, 2008

Here’s a great idea I learned about on Twitter–the new source of all good things! It’s a search engine called GoodSearch. GoodSearch is powered by Yahoo, so you know you get good search quality. But you also get something else: money to support a cause you believe in–Creekview High School, perhaps? Just go to GoodSearch, type in the name of your favorite school or charity in the appropriate box, and then search as you would with any other search engine. I tried it and got happy, reliable search results. GoodSearch was founded in 2005 by Ken Ramberg (the former founder of JOBTRAK, now a division of Monster.com) and JJ Ramberg (an MSNBC anchor and the former Director of Marketing at Cooking.com). GoodSearch donates fifty percent of its revenue to the charities and schools designated by its users. The money GoodSearch donates to your cause comes from its advertisers — the users and the organizations do not spend a dime! In 2007 they also added GoodShop, an online shopping mall of reputable retailers approximately three percent of the sale (but possibly up to 20%! or more) to your cause). GoodSearch makes it easy for you to give..without actually giving. what could be easier?
