Hello Everyone –
What if I told you that LCMS World Mission could earn a penny every time you searched the Internet? Or how about if a percentage of every purchase you made on-line went to support Missions? That’s exactly what I’m going to tell you.

GoodSearch.com is a new Yahoo-powered search engine that donates half its advertising revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate. Use it just as you would any search engine, get quality search results from Yahoo, and watch the donations add up!

GoodShop.com is a new on-line shopping mall which donates up to 37 percent of each purchase to your favorite cause! Hundreds of great stores including Amazon, Target, Gap, Best Buy, E-bay, Macy’s and Barnes & Noble have teamed up with GoodShop and every time you place an order, you’ll be supporting LCMS World Mission.

Give this a try!

Make www.goodsearch.com
