Searching the Web for a Cause

I recently received an email from a girl I worked with during college at the Duck Stop coffee shop (best latte west of the Mississippi), tucked into a cozy corner of the University of Oregon bookstore in Eugene, Oregon.  My former barista friend is now the VP and COO of the Sun Catchers Project, an amazing non-profit organization dedicated to harnessing solar power to help developing countries combat hunger and improve the health of millions.

Mission Statement of the Group:

To supply village size solar ovens to orphanages, schools and hospitals in developing countries; to practice and promote the responsible use of solar energy through integrated cooking; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment through the use of solar energy; and to improve the health of our children and generations to come by creating efficient sustainable cooking methods.

There are several ways to show your support for this group and their efforts, but one of the simplest and cheapest is to visit and use www.goodsearch.com.  Goodsearch is a search engine that allows you to access the internet the same way you always have, but it differs in that for every search completed through this website a donation is made to your charity of choice.  The Sun Catchers Project is only one of thousands of charity organizations that have already benefited from this site, and the best part is that it requires no financial investment and very little effort from you, the user.

So next time you need to access the web, consider an alternative to google: goodsearch it.
