It’s that time of year again where everywhere we turn we’re being asked to shop ’til we drop!

If you are the type of person who will do just about anything to avoid the holiday mall traffic you should try shopping online. There’s so much available online and now there’s a way to support charities like the Houston Museum of Natural Science while shopping online from the comfort of your own home!

GoodSearch is an online search engine (like google or yahoo) that donates to the charity of your choice each time you search – I even have the GoodSearch toolbar on my internet window so I can search and donate without even thinking twice! So – GoodSearch has taken it a step further and created GoodShop which is perfect for those of you who like to shop online! GoodShop partners with online retailers so that when you click on a particular online shop from the GoodShop homepage a percentage of your purchase price goes to the charity of your choice! What’s even better is that there is such a variety of online retailers participating (Apple store/Itunes, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Zappos, Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble just to name a few) you can find almost anything you’re looking for via the GoodShop page! There are also deals and coupons that the online shops will sometimes offer to GoodShoppers via the GoodShop page!

So here’s how it works:

1.Go to the GoodShop page

2. Select your Charity (HMNS is already loaded so all you have to do is search Houston Museum)

3. Click on the store of your choice out of the 700 participating retailers and buy something! Up to 30% of your purchase will go to your selected charity!

4. Tell all of your friends!
