Searches For Charity

i love my dog. correction: i love MIKE’s dog. He’s a hunting dog named Duke, and Mike fell in love with him online. He was trained in South Dakota, and we had to go pick him up in Dallas.

Isn’t he sweet?


Yea to Shalee for guessing Chocolate Lab! No prize for the win, but if y’all are prize motivated come back tomorrow!


And because I DO love Duke, I’ve become a fan of Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer. Love him! In his Valentine’s email to me (the love is mutual) he mentioned a search engine entitled GoodSearch. You can enter who you would like them to GIVE money to, and then search just as you would on google or anywhere else.

When I searched yesterday, Cesar’s foundation had just over $50. Today it’s at almost $100! That’s adding up pretty quickly, huh? If you’re a Cesar fan, just type in Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation, and click verify.

If you’re passionate for another cause, or school, or charity – check to see if they’re signed up with GoodSearch or encourage them to sign up! HolyAuntie is all about the horses, remember? I’m sure there’s a horse charity that could use a few searches that generate some dollars.

So tell me, y’all… what organization would you like to benefit with a few mouse clicks?

How cool! Thanks for sharing the info on Good Search. I’m going to check into it further as I know some organizations that could really benefit from something like this. What a great idea.

That picture is cracking me up! I honestly don’t know if I’ve heard of that guy before. I’ll have to check it out.

He’s such a pretty dog! I love chocolate labs with those gorgeous golden brown eyes. So pretty.

That picture is just classic. I love the ties! What a great idea!

I’ve never heard of the Dog Whisperer before, but I checked out his website and now I’m wishing I had cable. Raz and the Geek and me could definitely use a session with him!

What a great looking family! I’m a dog mom myself! I love the picture of your hound with the family. That looks like the ones here. You’ve got a beautiful dog!

That photo is great! How smart that dog looks in a tie. And the boys are so handsome!

There totally should have been a prize for that guess… I was first and everything!

And that Duke is a beautiful animal, especially with those kids…

I could think of a number of worthwhile charities. I’m off to GoodSearch now…

That is a good looking dog!!! He’s gorgeous and looks so sweet. (MY brother has a hunting dog that looks just like him — his was flown in from Minnesota though.)

Thanks for the GoodSearch tip! I installed it on my toolbar and now the Center for Missing and Exploited Children is getting a donation every time I think… “I wonder about…” and search it. I also emailed a link to many people in my address book to pass it on.

Good job!
