Search the web with money from Yahoo advertisers will go to SBCHA without you spending a dime! GoodSearch is a search engine which donates 50-percent of its revenue to the charities and schools designated by its users. It’s a simple and compelling concept. You use GoodSearch exactly as you would any other search engine. Because it’s powered by Yahoo!, you get proven search results. The money GoodSearch donates to your cause comes from its advertisers¬†– the users and the organizations do not spend a dime! Every time you search the internet SBCA will receive one penny. This doesn’t seem like a lot, but if 100 people searched twice daily using GoodSearch in a year’s time SBCHA would receive $730, with 1000 people searching twice a day it would generate about $7300 yearly.
