Good Search

Supporters of the American Lung Association are using GoodSearch and GoodShop, raising money with every search of the Internet and every purchase on-line!

What if even a fraction of the $140 billion generated by search engine advertisers* and online shopping was directed towards the fight for air?

That is the concept behind GoodSearch.com a new search engine powered by Yahoo! GoodSearch donates 50% of its revenue, approximately a penny per search, to the charities designated by its users. You use it exactly as you would any other search engine and the pennies add up quickly – just 500 people searching four times a day will earn around $7,300 in a year. It doesn't cost the users a thing!

Similarly with GoodShop.com, consumers are helping their favorite causes by shopping at hundreds of well known retailers including Amazon, Target, Apple, Macy's, Best Buy, Orbitz, Staples and others. The shopping experience and the prices are exactly the same as going to the retailer directly, but by going through GoodShop, up to 37% of the purchase price is donated the user's favorite cause!

The American Lung Association is registered with the sites, giving its supporters a chance to raise money for the cause every time they search the Internet or shop online. The goal is to earn $1250 through the site this year which will be used to pay for 10 schools or day care centers to receive Asthma 1-2-3™ workshops for staff who care for children with asthma.

Using GoodSearch is simple. Because the site is powered by Yahoo, users are assured of high quality results - but each time you search, money is generated by the advertisers for your favorite charity or school.

"Every penny counts", says Tracy Ross, CEO of the American Lung Association. "While doing a search or shopping online why not raise money for our cause? There is absolutely no reason not to use GoodSearch and GoodShop - it's so easy."
