Goodsearch Fundraising

Ss Peter & Paul Antiochian Women's Group supports our Archdiocese and provides charitable contributions to our community and our church.  We use eScrip and Goodsearch to raise funds.

Three ways to earn money:    
1. Search the Internet
2. Shop online (register with Goodshop)
3. Dine out (register with Gooddining)

Explanation of methods:
Goodsearch: Search the Internet with our patent-protected, Yahoo!-powered search engine (just like you’d          earch on any other search engine), and we’ll donate about a penny for nearly all searches to your selected cause.
Goodshop: Shop at one of our more than 2,800 participating stores (from Amazon to Zazzle) and a percentage of what you spend will be donated to your cause at no cost to you.
Gooddining: Dine at one of our 10,000 participating restaurants around the country and a percentage of what you spend will go to your cause – again at no cost to you.
Good-to-go add-ons: The GoodShop To-Go Button and Goodsearch Plug-in install in less than 30 seconds and help you to    earn donations for your favorite cause when you shop and search even when you don’t visit Goodsearch first!
Goodsurveys: When you complete a survey, we'll make a donation of about $1 to your cause!
Goodoffers: When you complete any of our special offers - from watching videos, to participating in market research, to buying a discounted treatment at a favorite local spa - we'll make a donation to your cause!
Goodtvads: Watch commercials from your favorite products and brands to raise money for your                 cause!

 Important Good To-Go add-ons:   three separate tools that make using Goodsearch and Goodshop easy!

Goodshop To-Go Button: Once you download this button, you do not have to click through from Goodshop to a  participating store to earn the donation. The Goodshop To-Go button works with your web browser so that when you visit the store on your own, it automatically recognizes you as a Goodsearch member and makes the donation happen! You’ll know its working because you’ll see a drop-down message appear when you visit a participating store. As an added bonus, the button alerts you to any coupons or deals available when you're on one of these merchant pages! The button also offers the option to make your homepage and default search engine. Goodshop To-Go works with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

Goodsearch App Plug-in: Goodsearch App Plug-in makes Goodsearch your default search engine and adds a Goodsearch search box to the upper right hand corner of Firefox browsers. It’s the easiest way to make sure you’re always   using Goodsearch to simply do good! The Goodsearch App Plug-in works with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.

Words of Wisdom

"You should secretly give from what you have to those in need, so that you receive from God, Who sees in secret, a hundred times more, as well as life eternal in the age to come (cf. Mt. 6:4; Mk. 10:30)." -- St. Gregory Palamas 

Fourth Sunday of Great Lent: Commemoration of John Climacus, Author of "The Ladder" (March 26)

The barren wilderness thou didst make fertile with the streams of thy tears; and by thy deep sighing thou hast given fruit through thy struggles a hundred-fold. Accordingly, thou hast become a star for the universe, sparkling with miracles. Therefore, O righteous Father John Climacus, intercede with Christ God to save our souls. (Apolytikion in Tone 8)
