Microsoft’s cool Search and Give program is on it’s last legs. On June 1, 2009 at 12AM Pacific Time, it will no longer work.
I think this is really sad. I thought this program was a wonderful way of contributing to an organization of your choice, as well as getting to the websites you needed. Now it’s going to die so soon.
As of 9:04 PM, Central Standard Time, the current amount of money made since September 2007 is just $536,348. Multiply that by 100 and that’s roughly the amount of searches that has been done.
Each person can do up to 100 searches a day, with each search being worth 1 cent. It’s a small change, but it’s change nonetheless.
You can choose from a variety of organizations, including schools and other local things. I managed to find my high school on the list, as well as its booster clubs.
So please, if you really want to help benefit an organization you like, use Search and Give before it dies. One search makes a difference, especially if you get all your friends to use it.
