Use GoodSearch to help the Petit Family Foundation

The above hyperlink brings you to "Goodsearch"- a search engine service that benefits various charities each time you you it! Anyone using the search is asked once to choose the charity that they would like their searches to donate money to-- this information is entered and each time you return to use Goodsearch, it will have the info saved and automatcally rack up money credits for that charity and it adds up!

Goodsearch was brought to my attention when I read that the Petit Family Foundation was one of the charities that used Goodsearch.
In fact just recently PFF was chosen as Goodsearch's "charity of the day".For those not familiar with The Petit Family Foundation, it is a local charity near and dear to our hearts here in Connecticut; it was started in the wake of the tragic murders of Jennifer Hawke Petit and her two daughters Hayley and Michaela, 19 and 11 years old respectively.

The crimes happened in Cheshire Ct in 2007 and the community, and indeed the state has been grieving these senseless murders ever since. The sole survivor, Dr William Petit, started the foundation shortly after the crimes as a way to carry the memory and spirit of his wife and daughters forward as well as doing positive things for others who are suffering from violent crime and chronic illness.

Last year PFF helped to fund a new shelter for battered women in New Britain Ct. This year they've donated a generous check to Ct Alive, an organization for victims of violent crime and their families. The foundation also awards educational scholarships to deserving youngsters, especially those pursuing science and medicine; Jennifer Petit was a pediatric nurse and Hayley Petit planned to pursue a medical career just like her dad, at Dartmouth, before her life was tragically cut short

So Please help honor this great charity by doing this very simple thing; Each time you use Goodsearch, after choosing PFF as your charity, the Petit foundation will receive a small amount of money, a bit more is credited when you use Goodsearch for online purchases via the "Goodsearch shopping" service choice. It quickly adds up! Search in good health!
