An Online fundraiser created by www.SearchingForTheCure.org is generating money for Cancer research by partnering with top search engine company Google. The website's search engine, powered by Google, donates proceeds from pay-per-click advertising to Cancer research groups and organizations around the world.
Simply by searching the Internet from the SearchingForTheCure.org website (www.SearchingForTheCure.org), or with the newly released SearchingForTheCure.org Toolbar, the average Internet user can help generate money for Cancer research. By partnering with Google, SearchingForTheCure.org provides the same quality search results, plus shows ads from Google's list of thousands of advertisers. When a user clicks on an advertisement related to their searches, proceeds are donated to organizations, companies, and individuals that are involved in Cancer research, treatment, and care giving.
«We really think it's something that people will want to get involved in,» said the project's Chief Administrator T.J. Skalka. «After the recent activism successes of rubber wristbands and magnetic ribbons, we were trying to figure out a Cancer fundraiser that would get the public involved on a large scale. Over 60% of Americans search on the Internet. How much larger can you get?» Skalka went on to say that although national Cancer rates are down, on average 1 in 4 Americans die from Cancer.
The SearchingForTheCure.org Toolbar also makes it easy for Internet users to help raise money from anywhere on the Internet. The toolbar, also powered by Google, offers a highlight and zooming features, pop-up blocking, and a large set of privacy tools. «It just seemed like the next step; From search page to search bar,» said Skalka. The SearchingForTheCure.org Toolbar is available for download at www.SearchingForTheCure.org/Toolbar/Toolbar.php.
