Make every gift count this holiday season as you shop online. Several national Grace Brethren organizations have partnered with GoodSearch.com and GoodShop.com, two search engines that give percentages of searches and purchases to registered nonprofits.
With GoodShop.com, consumers help their favorite causes by shopping at more than 1,600 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 30 percent of the purchase price is donated the user’s favorite cause.
In addition, for every search conducted on the Yahoo and Bing-powered GoodSearch.com search engine, approximately one penny is donated to the user’s favorite charity. Use it exactly like any other search engine, but with GoodSearch, the pennies add up quickly. Just 500 people searching four times a day will earn approximately $7,300 a year.
It’s a form of philanthropy that works for everyone in this tough economy.
Just go to GoodShop.com or GoodSearch.com, designate the cause you support and then click over to your favorite store and shop away. Among the partnering organizations are the Brethren Missionary Herald Company, Women of Grace USA, CE National, Grace College and Theological Seminary, and Integrated Community Development International (ICDI). A number of local Grace Brethren churches and schools may also be supported through this program. Click on “Participating Nonprofits” on either site to search through the more than 95,000 charities that you may support.
