DOING GOOD ONE SEARCH OR ONE PURCHASE AT A TIME!

Supporters of Brewton-Parker College are raising funds just by

searching the Internet and shopping online!

 

MOUNT VERNON  – What if even a fraction of the billions of dollars generated by search engine advertisers and online shopping was directed towards Christian higher education at Brewton-Parker College?

Brewton-Parker College has teamed up with GoodSearch.com and GoodShop.com to do just that!

With GoodShop.com, consumers are helping their favorite causes by shopping at more than 1,600 well known retailers including Amazon, Target, Apple, Macy’s, Best Buy, Orbitz, Staples and others.  The shopping experience and the prices are exactly the same as going to the retailer directly, but by going through GoodShop, up to 30% of the purchase price is donated the user’s favorite cause!

In addition, for every search conducted on the Yahoo and Bing-powered GoodSearch.com search engine, approximately one penny is donated to the user’s favorite charity.  Use it exactly like any other search engine, but with GoodSearch, the pennies add up quickly! Just 500 people searching four times a day will earn approximately $7,300 a year!  And, it doesn’t cost the users a thing!

It’s a form of philanthropy that works for everyone in this tough economy!

More than 94,000 nonprofits and schools are now registered with GoodSearch and GoodShop and more than 100 organizations are registering daily.  GoodSearch has quickly spread via word-of-mouth and the blogger community.  Examples of other organizations listed on the site include:  The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which has earned nearly $15,000; the ASPCA which has raised more than $35,000; and The National Inclusion Project which supports children with disabilities and has earned more than $14,000.

“Every penny counts”, says Norman Winter, Vice President for College Advancement of Brewton-Parker. “While doing a search or shopping online why not raise money for our institution?  There is absolutely no reason not to use GoodSearch and GoodShop - 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 and former President of JOBTRAK, the largest online career site for college students (now a division of Monster.com). “GoodSearch and GoodShop make it as easy as possible.  We’ve taken something people do every day -- searching the Internet and shopping online -- and have turned it into doing good."
