Use Microsoft Live Search & Microsoft With Donate To Charity
I am not really sure what to think of the most recent Live Search blog post that says, Use Live Search and We’ll Donate to Team Seattle and Ninemillion.org. If you search at http://teamseattle.live.com/, Microsoft will donate $1 to Team Seattle’s Seattle’s Children’s Hospital fund. Each time you search at http://teamseattle.live.com/, Microsoft will donate $1, but it has to be at http://teamseattle.live.com/. In addition, if you search at http://click4thecause.live.com/, Microsoft will “contribute to ninemillion.org, a UN agency-led campaign providing education and sports programs for the nine million refugee youth around the world.” The specific amount of that contribution was not disclosed or immediately found.
