Shopping on-line can raise money for Goodwill!
What if even a fraction of the $20 billion generated by online shopping was directed towards helping people in our community with disabilities and other barriers to employment.
At GoodShop.com, consumers are helping their favorite causes by shopping at hundreds of well known retailers including Amazon, Target, Apple, Macy’s, Best Buy, Orbitz, Staples and others. The shopping experience and the prices are exactly the same as going to the retailer directly, but by going through GoodShop, up to 37% of the purchase price is donated to the user’s favorite cause!
Goodwill Industries of the Redwood Empire recently registered with this site, giving its supporters a chance to raise money for the cause every time they search the Internet or shop online. Our goal is to earn $5000 through GoodShop.com this year, which will be used to pay for employment and training services for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment.
Using Goodshop is simple. Because the site is powered by Yahoo, users are assured of high quality results and security - but each time you search, money is generated by the advertisers for your favorite charity.
While shopping online why not raise money for our cause? There is absolutely no reason not to use GoodShop - it's so easy.
“We know there are a lot of people who want to do good but may not have the time or the money to help out.” said Ken Ramberg, Co-Founder of GoodShop.
