As you know, I'm always interested in finding ways that we can work together to reach more of the persons in short-term crisis who turn to Modest Needs for help. And I'm happy today to be able to tell you about another terrific way that you can help Modest Needs help others by doing something we all do all the time anyway: searching the Internet!
I'd like to introduce you to Goodsearch, 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.
Goodsearch is also incredibly easy to use (and who doesn't like that?) To make sure that Modest Needs benefits from any searching you do there, just type 'Modest Needs' in the box that says 'Who do you Goodsearch for?' and then click 'Verify.' At that point, just run your search as you normally would. You'll get exactly the results you want - but every time you search the Internet, Modest Needs will earn about a penny.
Modest Needs' motto has always been 'Small Change: A World of Difference,' and Goodsearch gives us yet another way to show just how much power our 'small change' has to change lives. Do you realize that if just 500 members of the Modest Needs Community ran a 'Goodsearch' for Modest Needs a few times a day, by the end of the year, we'd have raised about $7500 extra dollars - in pennies!
So please, do check out Goodsearch - and while you're there, please make Modest Needs your 'Goodserach' charity of choice. When you remember that we have more than 70,000 registered users of Modest Needs, it doesn't take you long to realize that, with a program like this, our potential to do good is limited only by the power of our imagination.
