Goodsearch is web page that will donate one cent to the charity of your choosing for every web search you perform through their website. The search is powered by Yahoo!. Many charities are listed and if you don't see yours listed, you can add it.
For example, if you want your searches to benefit OI, just simply type Osteogenesis Imperfecta in the goodsearch box in the middle of the page. Goodsearch will find your charity, if not it will ask you to type it again or possibly add it. Once your charity is added, you can click on the amount raised button to see how much money was raised for your charity.
Here is what has been generated thus far for the OI Foundation through GoodSearch:
They also provide a toolbar you can download and integrate into your web browser to make using Goodsearch more easy.
If I had been GoodSearching instead of Googling, I would have raised $63.57 for OI last year. I am going to have to rethink my search methods.
