When you search, please be good

GoodSearch is a search engine that donates 50 percent of its advertising revenues to charities designated by its users. It works like any other search engine, with Yahoo providing the results.

The American Copy Editors Society is raising money for its education fund using the site and its companion, GoodShop. That fund supports scholarships to students who are interested in careers in editing.

“Every time you use GoodSearch, the fund will get about a penny,” says Chris Wienandt, president of ACES. “If all 635 ACES members used the service to conduct an average of two searches a day (how hard is that for a copy editor?), the fund would earn about $3,300 a year.”

Next time you need to search for something online, consider using Goodsearch and selecting ACES as the recipient. Thank you for your support.
