With deep budget cuts looming in the air, United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County could use your help more than ever! There are many ways to help, but today we want to focus on an SIMPLE yet effective way to help out UCP-OC called GoodSearch.com. Last month we informed our parents about GoodSearch.com and our numbers multiplied by 8! Our hope is that we can utilize this site to raise support by using a medium our families already use. It is truly as easy as using your search engine or shopping online. GoodSearch.com donates half its advertising revenue, about a penny a search, to the charity you designate.
Goodsearch.com supports organizations you care about (UCP-OC) through partnering with stores you already shop at online! Up to 30% of your online purchase will go to UCP-OC. Hundreds of great stores including Amazon, Apple, Target, Gap, Best Buy, eBay, Macy’s and Barnes & Noble have teamed up with GoodShop and every time you place an order, you’ll be supporting your favorite cause.
You can also use it as a search engine, just like you use Google or yahoo search. UCP-OC receives a small donation each time you utilize GoodSearch once you’ve designated UCP – Orange County as your charity. GoodSearch is powered by Yahoo so you know your results will be accurate.
It’s so easy to continue supporting UCP-OC! Simply go to GoodSearch’s website and download the tool bar. Indicate United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) – Orange County as your charity of choice. http://www.goodsearch.com/toolbar/united-cerebral-palsy-ucp-orange-county
For more information go to www.goodsearch.com or read about them in The New York Times, ABC News, USAToday and more.
Also, don’t forget you can find us on facebook! We look forward to hearing from you on our page! Please share stories and let us know how UCP-OC has been involved with your family. We love building relationships with you! http://www.facebook.com/pages/United-Cerebral-Palsy-of-Orange-County/40306459081
