will donate 15% of their net proceeds to multiple charitable organizations
such as the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society and other
non-profit organizations. Users of online search engines, online travel
websites and online YellowPages websites are urged to use instead of going to the websites directly as this will
generate more revenue for the company and in result the company will donate
more to multiple charities. Users are able to recommend charities of their
choice to the company and vote on which charities should get a portion of
the 15% total donation by visiting

  According to Matt Richards the company spokesperson, “Our overall
revenues are high while our overhead remains fairly low. Our company and
our larger sister company can afford to donate some of the profits to
benefit good causes. We can comfortably give away 15-20% of our profits
while still remaining very profitable for our shareholders. Major
corporations need to take the lead in times of lower economic growth and
slowdown; the YellowPages being one of the most respected is no different.”


  Users of Google, Yahoo, or any search engine, travel website or
YellowPages website covered by or are
encouraged to download the toolbar plugin or just use the site and do their
part in donating to charities.
