Everyclick.com, the search engine that gives half of its revenue to charities, is challenging internet users to change their search engine in order to raise money for charity.

Using everyclick.com enables users to raise money for their favourite charity simply by doing something they do every day – searching the internet. This form of ‘desktop donating’ has already raised funds for charities such as Childline, Salvation Army, Save the Children and hundreds of small volunteer run organisations.

Launched in June 2005 everyclick.com is now one of the busiest charity websites and one of the fastest growing search engines in the UK . More than 300,000 regular users search the web and raise funds for their favourite charity.

Polly Gowers, founder of everyclick.com commented: “The beauty of everyclick.com is that people don’t have to do off the wall things to raise money for good causes. You don’t need to ride a bike across the desert, shave your head or sit in a bath of beans. We now have over 20,000 users each day raising up to £1,000. Our challenge to the rest of Britain is to try us and see for themselves how easy it is to raise money for charity”.

Charities can benefit even more from a ground-breaking deal between everyclick.com and the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to mark National Giving Week (16-22 October) and the extension of the everyclick.com service to all 170,000 UK Charities. CAF will make a £100* donation to the favourite charity of all everyclick.com users who set up individual accounts between now and Christmas.

Sheila Hooper, director of individual giving at CAF said: “We are thrilled to be able to work in partnership with everyclick. Making giving a part of everyday life is what CAF is all about, and what better way to encourage this than by challenging people to change their online search habits.”
