That’s the phrase we have up on our wall here at Goodsearch. Why? Well, because doing good can be simple. And a simple act, combined with those of the millions of other people on Goodsearch, can make a big difference in the world -- it can feed a child, help find a cure, plant a tree, create a home for a stray dog, and do so much more. Helping a cause you care about and making the world a better place can be something you do every day -- not only when you have time to volunteer or extra money to donate. This is what Goodsearch is all about. We give you the ability to turn your everyday actions into simple ways to support and raise funds for your favorite cause.
Goodsearch started as an idea…and now it has turned into a movement. More than 15 million people used Goodsearch last year to support more than 100,000 non-profits and schools.Since 2006, Goodsearch users have raised more than $9 million, participated in over 1.1 billion charitable actions, and have truly made a difference.
Organizations have used the money raised from Goodsearch to do everything from supporting cancer research, to buying books for a local library, to helping find homes for stray dogs, to cleaning up local rivers. The National Inclusion Project, for example, which helps children with disabilities, has used the money its supporters have raised through Goodsearch to send more than 400 kids to summer camp.
