Signing Time Foundation Featured Today

I am happy to share that the Signing Time Foundation is one of the featured foundations of the day, TODAY on GoodSearch and GoodShop. GoodSearch will give 1 cent to the non-profit of your choice (hopefully us!) for every internet search you do, every single day.

Goodshop is even better! When you shop on-line a portion of your purchase price is donated to our foundation and it costs you nothing! All it takes is a few extra clicks. I could not believe how many online partnerships Goodshop offers. If you buy tickets and travel from Delta or Travelocity, a portion can come to us! If you send flowers, shop clothing retailers, send gifts… please visit www.goodsearch.com and select The Signing Time Foundation as the foundation of your choice!

Look for our Signing Time Foundation logo and link in the upper left-hand corner of your screen on www.goodsearch.com and www.goodshop.com today!

  1. Awesome! I added the goodsearch feature to my browser’s toolbar so it’s always handy. Robert did the same with his computer. And we both do a lot of searches daily, mainly to be sure I don’t just type a site in that might not be the right address, plus I’m always looking things up.

  2. hi, i have to tell you first off THANK YOU!! i am always trying to find another way to donate to charities, and this is it right now! i sent an email to 402 people in my email list telling them to use Goodsearch, and Goodshop. they all love it so far! so thank you for passing that on.

    also, another thank you for all involved in the Signgtime production and creation! My 2 year old finally starting to speak! He may be slightly hearing impaired, not 100% sure yet. We discovered your show in May, and he started saying his first real words in June! I wish I could find some more people to learn from & with in my community of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

    P.S. you aren’t on PBS as off Sept.. will you be on tv anywhere else?

    thanks for everything, Emily
