Everyclick.com, the search engine that helps charities was voted the Hottest New Start Up at The Imperative Digital Awards. Four organisations were nominated for the award which is targeted at young growing companies cutting a swathe through the digital market. Everyclick secured the vote of expert judges and the readers of Netimperative and received the award at the Guanabara nightclub in London.

Everyclick.com gives 50% of its gross revenues to charity each month, in accordance with the choice of every user. Since going live in June 2005, the company has already helped raise funds for over 4,500 charities. Everyclick has secured content from Ask to help ensure users do not compromise their searches to help charity and the judges were impressed by its ease of use, quality of results and originality. In the words of the judges “Everyclick has harnessed the power of the Web to help good causes, at no expense to the charities or donors involved.”

Polly Gowers, CEO of everyclick said “We are extremely happy to have won this award. It is great to be recognised by the digital world and it makes all the hard work worthwhile. The team has gone above and beyond the call of duty to get everyclick up and running, so this award is a great acknowledgement of what they’ve put into it.”
