What's Your Cause?
With environmental charities seeing decreased donations because of the recession, people who care about the environment can turn to two services that help support these causes while searching and shopping.
GoodSearch.com is a Yahoo powered search engine, which donates a penny per search to your favorite environmental cause. The money comes from a portion of advertiser dollars (and not your own!) earned as a result of your search, which are now passed along to the organization you’ve chosen to support.
