Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Shop ‘Til You Drop! | January 25, 2008

Okay, you have been goodsearching (yes, I made that a verb) for many days now.  You have probably already noticed that there is also GoodShop.  In case you have been too enthralled with just searching, I am here to point it out to you.  First a reminder, GoodSearch.com is a search engine powered by Yahoo! that donates its ad revenues to the charity of your choice when you click on the sponsored links.  For more details on how it works and the good that it does, reread our post all about it.

Goodshop is very similar, you can get to it by either clicking the tab on the goodsearch homepage, or by following this link.  The first thing you need to remember to do is type in the name of the charity you want the proceeds to go to.  Next you will scroll down and notice the lengthy list of stores that you can shop from.  These stores are conveniently categorized for you, so that you can easily see which pet supplies stores or electronic stores contribute money.  You do not have to pay extra!!!  Instead, a percentage of your purchase is donated to the charity you choose.  These percentages vary depending on the store from less than one percent all the up to over 25 percent at ebay and match.com.

When you are searching for Valentine’s Day jewelry, Presidents’ Day gifts, or a birthday present for your pet, head over to GoodShop and make you purchase count to more than just you and your loved one.

Here’s the Walrus looking at flowers for Valentine’s Day through GoodShop, 1800Flowers donates 7% to the charity he chooses!  He will probably pick the ASPCA since they took care of him before we adopted him.  But, it looks like he is having trouble deciding which bouquet to get his sweetheart!

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
