When you shop through GoodShop at one of their retail partners, GoodSearch is paid a commission. At GoodSearch, they've developed a way to track these shopping-generated proceeds and direct them to SURVIVORS. The amount donated is different for each retailer but it averages approximately 3% of the total sale and can go up to 20% and beyond (the percentage donated is indicated below the merchants logo). The total amount raised can quickly add up and the sky is the limit. The more people shop through GoodSearch, the more money will be directed towards SURVIVORS. There is no time limit on this offer or cap on how much money they will direct to SURVIVORS!
