In addition to supporting the Blue Ridge Center through donations, you can become an advocate to support us. We sincerely appreciate your support in the following areas!
GoodSearch and GoodShop
The Blue Ridge Center is registered with GoodSearch.com and GoodShop.com. You can raise money for the Blue Ridge Center by using GoodSearch.com to search the Internet and GoodShop.com to make online purchases.
GoodSearch.com is the search engine with a unique social mission. It's powered by Yahoo!, so you get the same great search results, but each time you do a search, GoodSearch makes a donation to the Blue Ridge Center! Once you designate "Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship" in the "Choose your cause" box, 50% of advertising revenue from your searches is donated to the Blue Ridge Center.
GoodShop.com is the online marketplace that donates a percentage of your online purchase to the charity of your choice. You can choose from hundreds of popular online merchants and the experience of shopping through GoodShop.com is the same as going to the retailer directly.
Making these minor changes to your daily routine can have a major impact on the Blue Ridge Center. Just remember to designate the "Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship" as your charity of choice when you log on to GoodSearch.com or GoodShop.com.
