GoodSearch & GoodShop team up with SD Lions Foundation

Here are a couple of quick and easy ways that ALL Lions can help raise money for the Lions Foundation of South Dakota.

First, simply download the GoodSearch tool bar and select the Lions Foundation of South Dakota as the charity for which you can raise money without even breaking a sweat!  Just lift your fingers, type, and search the web.  How easy is that?  To learn more, and download the search tool bar, simply go to

You’ll find a boat load of information about this program, which can go a long way to helping South Dakota Lions fortify resources in order to better accomplish our mission.  Plus, you’ll learn about GoodShop, a companion project that helps our foundation earn a donation every time you shop on line!

Here is an interesting statistic shared by Barbara Armango of the Lions Foundation office in Sioux Falls:  if two people perform two web searches using GoodSearch every day for a year, it would generate $730 for the foundation.

“Think about it, we are 2000-plus members strong.  Just think what we can do!"

"And if you make purchases on GoodShop, participating companies will give a percentage of your purchase to our foundation,” says Armango.  Great firms like Amazon, Target, Gap, Best Buy, eBay, Barnes & Noble, Toys R Us, and hundreds more are participating in this endeavor.

GoodSearch is powered by Yahoo, and they’ll donate about a penny to our cause each time you search.

And some 1,300 merchants participate in the GoodShop program, donating a percentage of each purchase to our Lions Foundation of South Dakota.
