Goodsearch: You Search...We Give!

Go to www.goodsearch.com and go to the "participating non-profits" and "West Virginia" list to find us as the charity you want to support. Just 50 of us searching four times a day will raise about $730 in a year without anyone spending a dime! Please try it out, and spread the word! HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
