GoodSearch and GoodShop

Dear Parents,

I would like to remind you that Temple Beth Am of Merrick Religious School is partnered with GoodSearch and GoodShop! More than 77,000 nonprofits and schools are now participating in their program! Temple Beth Am of Merrick is up and running on their two sites:
  • - The search engine with a unique social mission. It's powered by Yahoo!, so you get great search results, and each time you search, GoodSearch makes a donation to our School
  • - The new online marketplace that donates a percentage of your purchase to our school. You can choose from hundreds of popular merchants and the experience of shopping through GoodShop is exactly the same as going to the retailer's websites directly.
Here are some questions you might be asking:
Q) How does it work?
On the GoodSearch homepage, choose from thousands of organizations or add your favorite cause to our list.
Search the Internet just like you normally would — the site is powered by Yahoo!, so you'll get high-quality search results. Fifty percent of the revenue generated from advertisers is shared with the charity, school or nonprofit organization of your choosing.

Q) Are the search results going to be as good as the search engine I am using now? is powered by Yahoo! so you'll get high-quality search results!

Q) How much money could this generate for my charity or school?
We estimate that each Web search will generate approximately $0.01 for the designated charity or school (image, video and site-specific searches are not included). It quickly adds up!

Q) How do I raise money for my favorite charity or school with GoodShop?
Every time you click over to one of our partner merchants from the GoodShop site and then make a purchase, your charity or school earns money. The more you shop, the more they make! Add up the money generated from all of your shopping and the shopping done by all of the other people who use GoodShop, and we can make a real difference for many worthy causes. 100% of the donation displayed on GoodShop goes to your designated nonprofit or school.
Thank you,
Rabbi Mickey
