An alternative to google that helps raise $

Hi all,

I have been using www.goodsearch.com for a year now and wanted to share the link with everyone. JGI is a designated cause, so just type the full name in the field “Who do you search for?” and select verify. Once  you past that step you can search just as you would using google or choose to shop online. In 2006 we only raised $53.60, but this year it is up to $229.34. I typically search info online 10-15 times a day, so I could possibly raise about $50 a year all on my own. It doesn’t seem like a lot but if we continue to share this website with Roots & Shoots groups, especially during this holiday season, it is sure to add up  : )

  1. That’s a pretty cool idea for a search engine. I’ve seen similar things done before, like Ripple, FreeRice, and SocialVibe, but the ability to choose a specific charity is a good feature.

  2. I love it but I wish someone would do it with a Google search engine instead of Yahoo. Google is just so much better than Yahoo.
