What's The Diff?

The things Quicken Loans team members care about and want to share with the world

Search and Give

Search and Give, powered by Microsoft on Quicken Loans blog, What's The DIFF?by Dave Rigotti

As The DIFF previously wrote, painless giving is really, really good.  I’m excited to write about another painless giving that’s called the Search and Give by Microsoft’s Live Search team.

It’s pretty simple and works like this: 1 cent for every search performed on the site is donated to a charity or school of the searchers choice.   In fact, there are over 800,000 non-profits organizations and 100,000 U.S. schools that a user can choose to donate. 

It works too – over $315,000 has been donated since September.  The more you use the website to search, the more you give.

There are also some pretty nifty features, including analytics that track your donations, total donations, and total number of contributors for your chosen organization.

Next time your going to look something up online, go to http://www.searchandgive.com/ and make that search count!  Better yet, make it your homepage.  Oh, and tell a friend about it.  Rally them up have them donate to your chosen organization. 

Power in numbers.

Dave Rigotti is a former Quicken Loans Marketing intern and the founder and owner of Freezing Hot. He’s currently over at Microsoft doing another summer internship. Remember his name, because our guess is you’ll see big things from this University of Toledo student. When it comes to internet marketing, Dave’s got game!

  2. I almost wrote about this site recently: http://www.goodsearch.com/ Both great options. So is the non-profit shopping mall. Couldn’t be easier to make a difference.
