Get Involved with GoodSearch!

Looking for a way to DO GOOD in 2009? The New York Times refers to this (relatively) new, easy way to raise money for your favorite cause as "giving without giving."

While I obviously work hard for a publicly traded, 'for profit' company, I am deeply interested in the work that non-profit organizations do for the greater good of our society, as well as underserved populations both locally and globally. In today's troubling economic times, some of the greatest non-profit organizations in our country, and hence the people and issues they represent, struggle the most.

Now, we can help without feeling yet another pinch in our pocketbooks: Just start using Yahoo! powered as your search engine and they'll donate a penny to your favorite cause every time you do a search!

In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall,, where you can shop at more than 900 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the charity or school of your choice. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to your cause!

Here's the web site — You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal.

And, in case you care (no pun intended), I chose CARE as my organization of choice.

About CARE: Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere

CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.

So, if continuing to give back is part of your personal business plan for 2009, could be a great tool for you!
