GoodSearch and GoodShop
What if the IFOPA earned a penny every time you searched the Internet? Well, now we can!
GoodSearch.com is a new search engine that donates half its revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate. You use it just as you would any search engine, and it's powered by Yahoo!, so you get great results.
Just go to www.goodsearch.com and be sure to enter the International FOP Association as the charity you want to support. Just 500 of us searching four times a day will raise about $7300 in a year without anyone spending a dime! And, be sure to spread the word!
GoodShop is GoodSearch's shopping extension. Essentially, it lets you shop for items at many popular online stores (like Amazon.com, eBay, Gap and more) and the retailer, in turn, donates a percentage of your sale to the IFOPA! According to the site, a recent $432 purchase at online shoe store Zappos.com earned a specific charity $26 -- you could do the same for the IFOPA!
Just visit www.goodsearch.com, click on the Shopping tab, select the IFOPA as your charity of choice and then click on the online shop links found on that page to access the sites. Then, just buy products as you normally would. The donation will be made automatically after the sale. It's that easy.
