Fundraise for RESULTS Without Spending a Dime

In today’s struggling economy, it comes as no surprise that the amount of charitable donations has taken a dive. But what if you could donate without reaching into your wallet? What if you could help support RESULTS financially, without changing your daily routine? With GoodSearch, an online search engine that works with charities and nonprofits, you can.

Founded in 2005 by Ken and JJ Ramberg, a brother-and-sister team, GoodSearch allows the searcher to specify a charitable organization as their beneficiary, and then donates a penny to that organization every time the search engine is used. Sure, one penny might not seem like a lot, but it can add up very quickly: if only 500 people searched 3 times a day in the name of RESULTS, we could raise $5,475 in just one year!

GoodSearch is powered by Yahoo!, so when you use it for an Internet search, you receive reliable results. The Rambergs have also started a sister site, GoodShop, that earns money for nonprofits when users shop online.

As a college student, I rarely have extra money lying around to donate to the organizations I care about. If I had only known that every time I searched for new recipes or special shopping deals, I could have been helping to change someone’s life, I would have made GoodSearch my default search engine a long time ago.

So stop what you’re doing. Go to and right now to start donating. With virtually no effort, you too can help contribute to RESULTS’ ultimate goal of alleviating poverty around the world — and it won’t even cost you a dime. You can learn more about these great websites by watching this video.
