GoodSearch - Searching for a Cause

GoodSearch uses the Yahoo! Search Engine, and donates money to an organization selected by the searcher based on the number of searches run. According to the GoodSearch FAQ,
Search engines make most of their money from companies that pay an advertising fee when users click on links during a search. At GoodSearch, we've developed a patent-pending way to track and direct these search-generated proceeds to charities. In other words, a portion of advertiser dollars (and not your own!) earned as a result of your search, are now passed along to the organization you've chosen to support.
You can add GoodSearch to your Explorer or Firefox toolbar.

Local and national organizations relevant to women's health you may contribut to using GoodSearch include:

  • Boston Women's Health Book Collective, Inc. (the Our Bodies Ourselves people)
  • Breast Cancer Education Initiative, Inc - Germantown, TN
  • Human Being Care, HIV Resources, Inc. - Jackson, TN
  • Memphis Regional Planned Parenthood, Inc. - Memphis, TN
  • Ovarian Cancer National Alliance
  • Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee, Inc. - Nashville, TN
  • Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
  • Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition Inc. - Nashville, TN
  • Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization, Inc.

    Please note that I am not necessarily familiar with these organizations and am not endorsing them, but found them as women's health donation options through the GoodSearch list of charities, which really needs a subject browse and location search. At this time, you may only search by organization name.
