Goodsearch Fundraising


Click here for our Church's "GoodSearch" page

Three ways to earn money:    
1. Search the Internet
2. Shop online (register with Goodshop)
3. Dine out (register with Gooddining)

Explanation of methods:
Goodsearch: Search the Internet with our search engine (just like you’d search on any other search engine), and we’ll donate a penny for nearly all searches to your selected cause.

Goodshop: Shop at one of our more than 2,800 participating stores (from Amazon to Zazzle) and a percentage of what you spend will be donated to your cause at no cost to you.
Gooddining: Dine at one of our 10,000 participating restaurants around the country and a percentage of what you spend will go to your cause – again at no cost to you.

Important Good To-Go add-ons:   three separate tools that make using Goodsearch and Goodshop easy =
1.  Goodshop To-Go Button: Once you download this button, you do not have to click through from Goodshop to a  participating store to earn the donation. The Goodshop To-Go button works with your web browser so that when you visit the store on your own, it automatically recognizes you as a Goodsearch member and makes the donation happen! You’ll know its working because you’ll see a drop-down message appear when you visit a participating store. As an added bonus, the button alerts you to any coupons or deals available when you're on one of these merchant pages! The button also offers the option to make your homepage and default search engine.

2.  Goodsearch App Plug-in: Goodsearch App Plug-in makes Goodsearch your default search engine and adds a Goodsearch search box to the upper right hand corner of Firefox browsers. It’s the easiest way to make sure you’re always using Goodsearch to simply do good! The Goodsearch App Plug-in works with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.
3.  Goodshop mobile app: Download the free Goodshop app for iPhone or android to get the best deals and coupons for your favorite online stores, whenever you want to shop. Every time you shop, we’ll donate a percentage of your purchase to the cause of your choice – at no extra cost to you!

Conception of St. John the Baptist (September 23)

Rejoice, O barren one, who had not given birth; for behold thou hast conceived clearly the one who is the dawn of the Sun Who was about to illuminate the whole universe, blighted with sightlessness. Shout in joy, O Zacharias, crying in favor, Verily, the one to be born is a Prophet of the High. (Apolytikion in Tone 4)

"The goal of reading is the application, in our lives, of what we read. Not to learn it by heart, but to take it to heart. Not to practice using our tongues, but to be able to receive the tongues of fire and to live the mysteries of God." -- Elder Paisios the Athonite
