“ASPCA has earned more than $22,000!

“Los Angeles, CA, December, 2008 – With the economy slipping, charities across the nation are bracing themselves for declining contributions this holiday season.

“While individuals still want to support their favorite cause, they may not have the time or the money to do so. There is a solution. More than 70,000 nonprofits have partnered with a new Yahoo-powered search engine called, and online shopping mall to enable their supporters to generate donations just by doing something they do everyday – search the Internet or shop online. What makes the system so compelling is that it doesn’t cost the users a thing. It’s a form of philanthropy that works for everyone in this tough economy!”

I know where I’ll be from now on: The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is on the huge, really big huge, list of charities if you needed more incentive to use this search engine.
