The article offers information on GoodSearch.com, a search engine that donates half its revenue to the charities its users support. According to Luciano Kovacs, director of the Homeless Outreach and Advocacy program at New York's Jan Hus Presbyterian Church, around 500 people searching four times a day would raise over seven thousand dollars a year.
