Searching for a Cause

How many times have you thought to yourself, I sure wish every time I Googled something 1 cent went to a charitable organization? Never? Well me neither, until today. Blogger World, my dear friend Holly has discovered a great thing. Good Search. Good Search is very similar to Google, except every time you search for something on Good Search 1 cent goes to the charity you have chosen. How great is that? You aren’t even doing anything and you are giving.

My friend, Holly, gives great information on her blog about this...

Partners Ken and JJ Ramberg partnered with Yahoo! to create Good Search, a search engine that would get in on some of that advertising revenue and send it into the hands of reputable charities. According to their website, there are 42,000 non-profits participating and they have raised $3,400 for Darfur and
other similar causes since their launch in 2005.

You might be thinking 1 cent isn’t a big deal, which is true 1 cent is not to some people. But think how many times you Google random things. I use Google for everything; and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING. I use for finding caking recipes to searching myself. Oh come on…everyone does it!

So today’s mission is to get on and help out. Who knows your search might save someone.

This is such an awesome idea! I always have to be very selective about which 'causes' to stand behind and brign to our church, but this is such a no-brainer. What a great concept for ministry. Thanks for passing the word along about this.
