Click It for the Cure
How is money for my selected cause raised through Click It for the Cure?
Last year search engines generated close to $6 billion in
revenue from advertisers. We've developed a way to direct some of that money to
the causes you care about most. It's easy ... every time you click on one of the
partner sites you are directed to a sponsored advertisers page.
The companies pay advertising fees to have their products listed, so by
to browse on the Internet, the designated charity or cause earns money and the
more you browse, the more they make. Add up the money generated from all your
shopping searches and those done by the millions of other people who we hope will use
Click It for the Cure, and we can make a real difference to the people and
causes that need funds most.
How does it work?
On the Homepage,
10 individual links are listed for various products with the donations
designated to go to charities that support fighting breast cancer.
Navigate the site for other partner shopping links to support heart
disease research or stopping animal abuse.
Use the links to
browse on the Internet just like you normally would — Goldkey and NameDrive, two
of the leading Internet companies for sponsored web pages, power the sites, so
you will find quality companies listed on the sites.
Our unique accounting system allows us to track where you intend your
donation to be directed.
The revenue generated from advertisers is shared with the charity or cause of
your choosing, so if you intend for an organization that supports heart disease
research to get the funds then you should begin your browsing from the sites
listed on that page.
How much money could this generate for my charity or school?
We estimate that each time you browse on one of the partner
sites approximately $0.025 for the designated cause will be generated.
If you think about how many times you browse on the Internet each year, and
then add in all the browsing from the supporters of your organization, it
quickly adds up! Here's an example of how much your organization can earn:
The possibilities are limitless. The more people use Click It
for the Cure, the more money will be directed towards causes. There is no cap on
how much money we will direct to charities.
Where does the money come from?
Quite simply the money comes from companies that pay an
advertising fee when users click on links during a search.
At Click It for the Cure, we've developed a way to track your browsing of
our partner shopping sites and direct these proceeds to charities. In other
words, a portion of advertiser dollars (and not your own!) earned as a result of
your browsing, are now passed along to the cause you've chosen to support.
Are there any fees charged for using the site?
No, absolutely not!
What percentage of revenue goes to the charities and schools?
Click It for the Cure has a unique social mission, that involves giving as much money back to charity as possible while remaining a self-sustaining business. A minimum of 50 percent of revenues will be directed to the designated causes.
What stops people from clicking just to raise money for a charity? What
is meant by fraudulent searching?
We ask that you use this site honestly. As long as you use
the links just as you would any other browsing sites, it's never a problem.
Fraudulent searching includes, but
is not limited to, repeated manual clicks, the use of use of robots or other
automated query tools, etc.
