With only two weeks to go until #GivingTuesday, and all the stress of the holidays upon us here is a super easy way to give back to your favorite arts organization on Giving Tuesday and all year long!How many times a day do we all “Google it?” With smartphones, tablets, and other devices always at the ready, we are constantly going to the internet to find information from celebrity gossip to best practices, and now you can make it your own best practice to give back while getting the information you seek!
GoodSearch is a search engine powered by Yahoo! that allows browsers to select a cause as a beneficiary of their endless search for internet knowledge! For every search conducted, Goodsearch will donate .01 to your cause. Multiply that by the 10 searches a day, 365 days a year, and you’re at $36.50 in annual giving. Now imagine if 10 friends joined you… now we’re at $365.00 just for looking up whether Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are “on again” or “off again.”
Now you may be saying… well $36.50 isn’t exactly bringing home the bacon for my favorite non-profit… but alas- there’s more! You can combine your GoodSearching with GoodSwipe! And now, while you’re out doing your holiday shopping, or just getting in some quality retail therapy, you can earn even more money for your cause, because GoodSwipe will donate up to 3% of your purchase at select retailers to your charity.
STILL not convinced you can make an impact just by doing what you’re already doing? How about this… add on GoodDining and earn up to 6% of your purchase back for your cause!
So long story short, you can earn cash for the organization of your choice (Albany Barn, obviously) by taking 5 minutes or less to set up an account, change your default browser to GoodSearch, and shopping with GoodSwipe and GoodDining!
