So, during my mad dash to raise funds for the Endometriosis Foundation of America, I’ve found ways that we can support the E.F.A. without spending money!
My favorite? GoodSearch! www.goodsearch.com is a search engine that donates $0.01 every time you conduct an online search. You create an account, choose the charity, and they donate once a month! I don’t use Google anymore! Just Goodsearch! It’s powered by Yahoo and the results are pretty much spot-on for Google. Goodsearch also has games, and will donate $0.01 for every 3 games you play. Raising money and not spending any? PERFECT!
There is also GoodShop, which is through GoodSearch. You look for an online store, and GoodShop will tell you if they donate any proceeds to your charity (again, mine is the Endometriosis Foundation of America, but you can choose any). You’ve got to register with GoodShop, and click on the online store through their GoodShop webpage…then it takes you directly to the online store and it’s shopping as usual. I do so much online shopping anyway, it just makes good sense! So I shop at my favorite online vendors, and they donate between 1% – 5% of my purchase price to the E.F.A.! Just for shopping where I normally shop!
GoodDining will be closing it’s doors on December 16, 2014. All donations incurred prior to that date will be honored. There is also GoodDining, which is through GoodSearch. GoodDining works with restaurants in your area. You sign up, identify the charity you wish to donate to, and register your debit/credit card. You can search for restaurants, go eat, pay with the registered card, and they’ll donate between 1% – 5% of your meal price to the E.F.A! Just for eating out like I normally do!! And, if you place a review of a restaurant on GoodDining, they’ll donate an additional 1% of your meal!!
I’ve used Goodsearch, GoodShop, and GoodDining for about 2 months. Just doing what I normally do…and so far have raised $5.39 for the E.F.A. It doesn’t sound like a lot…but, it will add up! Every little bit helps!
Today, there’s 61 people registered on GoodSearch to support the Endometriosis Foundation of America. They’ve raised $91.17! I don’t know how active these other 60 people are, but could you imagine the money we could raise if we all did it!?!

If you need any help registering, let me know. I haven’t done it in a bit, but I’m sure I could figure it out and walk you through it. 🙂
