NEw indirect way to raise funds for MCEE
We have recently added another way that you can help us raise funds by doing the things you do (indirect fundraising). In addition to Amazon and Ohmconnect, we are adding Goodsearch / Goodshop to our list of indirect fundraisers. For Goodsearch, we get a penny for every search that you do with goodsearch. Just signup for goodsearch and choose MCEE as your cause that you support. It might seem that a penny makes a difference, but it really adds up fast, if you tell your family, friends, and coworkers about how to support us. For goodshop, we get a small percentage of what you buy if you go through goodshop to make purchases.
