Support Us Through GoodSearch -- It's FREE!!

Times are tough--we all feel it whether we're millionaires or stay at home moms. I was recently reading an article in a magazine that stated that charitable donations are down across the board. Very sad because I know people want to help, it is just a matter of not having enough funds to go around.

But you can still help!!! And it is totally FREE!!

You search online, right? So instead of going to Google or Yahoo, why not use GoodSearch? Through GoodSearch Scrapbook Royalty earns a penny for every search you do. Just type in "Scrapbook Royalty" in the box for charity name and we'll automatically earn money every time you use GoodSearch in the future. You can even see how much we've made each month, in the past year, and since we joined Good Search. Here's some info from their website about our numbers as of today:

Please use this site honestly. Fraudulent searches will result in a charity being de-listed.

Scrapbook Royalty (San Diego, CA)

10/31/06. We are currently working on speeding up the Amount Raised report and hope to have it available again tomorrow. All searches and revenue earned during earned this period continue to be counted. Thank you for your patience.
MonthSearchesAmount Raised from Searches (est.)New! Amount Raised from Shopping – Updated WeeklyTotal (Estimated)
Total: Year-to-Date256$2.56$0.00$2.56
Total: Since Inception2167$22.49$8.94$31.43

The more people use GoodSearch, the more money will be directed towards your cause. The sky is the limit so please spread the word!

We estimate that each search will raise $0.01 for your favorite charity or school (image, video and site-specific searches are not included). However, for the fiscal years (October through September) of 2006, 2007 and 2008, each search actually earned 1.3 cents!

The data from GoodSearch is calculated in real time, while the GoodShop shopping data is posted weekly. GoodShop donations may also be delayed in posting as our retailers can take up to eight weeks to report sales back to us. Also, you may notice a change in the totals due to returned merchandise or cancelled orders.

Here's an example of how much your organization can earn:

Charity or School Size Number of Supporters Average Searches Per Day Estimated Revenue/Year from Search Amount Purchased Per Person/Year via GoodShop Average % of Sale Donated Estimated Revenue from Shopping Total Donation/Year
Small 100 2 $730 $500 3% $1,500 $2,230
Medium 1,000 2 $7,300 $500 3% $15,000 $22,300
Large 10,000 2 $73,000 $500 3% $150,000 $223,000

The data provided herein is estimated. For example, the revenue does not reflect certain adjustments which may be provided for in the terms of service (e.g. adjustments due to fraudulent searches, or returned or cancelled merchandise). As a result, we offer no representation or warranty as to the accuracy of this information. This information is to be used as a guide only.

So add Good Search to your toolbar to make it easy to search and help us earn money every time you search. You can also use GoodShop to shop your favorite online retailers and they will donate a percentage of the sale to Scrapbook Royalty. How cool is that?!
