Goodsearch and Goodshop: Donate by Doing What You Do Anyway

Help us raise money by searching the web and shopping online! When you go to Goodshop.com you can save money from your purchase and Goodshop will donate up to 20% of your purchase to Molotov Theatre Group. So when you shop at one of your favorite shops like Lands’ End, Neiman Marcus or Nike you will be supporting our Molotov, and our mission to promote education and theatrical performance in the horror and suspense genre.

It’s easy. Here’s how they all work:

1) GOODSEARCH—A penny for your searches goes to Molotov

www.goodsearch.com

Find Molotov Theatre Group in the “Who do you want to help” search window. Follow the screen prompts to sign up and create a profile. You’re ready!

Goodsearch gives one cent for each search (with some exceptions like searching for images, or clickthroughs). Yahoo powers the search engine, so you’ll get the same results you’d expect with Yahoo. You can easily set goodsearch.com as your home page in Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome.

There is also a plugin for Firefox to set goodsearch as your default search engine: http://www.goodsearch.com/goodto-go/plugin

2) GOODSHOP— A percentage of your online purchases are donated to Molotov

Click to goodshop from the goodsearch home page. Find your favorite online store via goodshop (on your laptop, tablet or phone – there’s a goodshop app for smart phones). You go directly to the regular store site, so your buying experience is the same as accessing the site directly. That’s good if you have online accounts with these shopping sites, so you can earn store points as well as donate to Molotov.

The trick is to not rely solely on the pre-set lists of stores. Search using the goodshop search tool for the online sites you want to shop. Goodshop tells you the percentage donation for each store and any restrictions. You can also use the coupons and usually get the coupon discount AND make a donation too!

Don’t forget travel sites, including online flights and car rentals.

TIPS TO GET THE BEST USE FROM THESE OPTIONS:

If you go online to make a purchase or a reservation, check goodshop first. You’ll be surprised at how many of your go-to sites can donate to Molotov. Friends and relatives probably have gift registries (wedding, shower, etc.) at many of the sites that donate to goodshop. Your travel site or car rental agency may be there too. Even Amazon gives 1.5%, which is three times more than on their own AmazonSmile account.
