Paul Newman's recent passing got me thinking about businesses that help promote charitable donations and reminded me of Goodsearch and iGive.Goodsearchhttp://www.goodsearch.com/
It's a Yahoo based search engine where you can select a non-profit to receive 1 penny for every Internet search you conduct using the Goodsearch engine.
This is legit as I volunteer for a non-profit that received a check for $245.10 for searches conducted last year by our supporters.iGive
Another site is http://www.iGive.com
which is essentially a shopping portal for most major retailers and e-tailers. You register with iGive and select the charity that you wish to support.
The next time you need to order print cartridges from Staples, or holiday gift baskets for business, friends or family, or interesting cr@p from Overstock, by going through iGive, a percentage of your total purchase is donated to your chosen charity.
There is no difference in price by going through iGive as it simply takes you to the merchant's website although you do have to allow cookies to track your total and match it to your chosen charity.
