Browser with Benefits

Next time you’re browsing for bargains or surfing for celebrity gossip, consider skipping the obvious search engines (for brevity's sake, we'll accord them the collective appellation Bingloo!) and give a try. Each and every time you type in a term with this Yahoo-powered site (D'oh! So much for the statement against corporate search behemoths), you’ll raise one cent for charity.

That may not sound like a lot, but think about how much you could raise in just one “I’ve-got-nothing-to-do-and-the-boss-is-gone" afternoon (I’m not the best at math, but I’m sure it’s at least a dollar or two, depending on how fast you type). And, remember, every bit helps.

There are over 92,000 nonprofits to choose from, covering everything from animals and education to human rights and hunger relief. Since launching in 2005, GoodSearch has helped raise $17,000 for Best Friends Animal Society, $5,900 for Heifer International, and $12,300 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The more you search, the more you raise. Click here to get started.
