Internet users log onto the Web site, select the charity (or charities) they want to support and use the site as their primary search engine. For each search that’s made approximately one penny will be donated to the selected charity. A portion is also donated to the “Charity of the Day.”

Yahoo provides GoodSearch.com’s search engine, and is the source of the money that’s donated to the charities, the release says. GoodSearch.com chose the association as one of its featured charities because of its commitment to recreational boater safety, the Coast Guard and the country,” according to the release.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary Association and Soundings Publications recently signed an agreement to help promote boating safety and homeland security throughout the United States. Under the agreement, Soundings will publish the association’s public education class schedules, encouraging boaters to become better educated and safer on the water.
