Doing Good One Search At A Time!

Supporters of TropicalClinics are using GoodSearch and raising money with every search of the Internet!

(Kingston, NJ ) 2009 -- What if even a fraction of the $140 billion generated by search engine advertisers* was directed towards safe, modern health care in Kakamega, an area ravaged by HIV, subject to youth malnourishment, infant mortality and pregnancy-related deaths?

That is the concept behind a new search engine powered by Yahoo!  GoodSearch donates 50% of its revenue, approximately a penny per search, to the charities designated by its users.  You use it exactly as you would any other search engine and the pennies add up quickly – just 500 people searching four times a day will earn around $7,300 in a year.  It doesn’t cost the users a thing!

Using GoodSearch is simple. Because the site is powered by Yahoo, users are assured of high quality results - but each time you search, money is generated by the advertisers for TropicalClinics Organization. 

“Every penny counts”, says Dr. Margaret Kilibwa, of the TropicalClinics Organization.  “While searching for something online why not raise money for our cause?  There is absolutely no reason not to use GoodSearch - it's so easy”

“We know there are a lot of people who want to do good but may not have the time or the money to help out.” said Ken Ramberg, Co-Founder of GoodSearch. “GoodSearch make it as easy as possible.  We’ve taken something people do every day -- searching the Internet -- and have turned it into doing good."
