START MAKING CENTS! As I've noted at my blog Gluten-Free NYC, you can get GoodSearch to contribute about a penny to the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) every time you use its Yahoo! search engine on Sunday, February 4 (also known as Michael's Birthday and Super Bowl Sunday 2007).

People with celiac disease suffer from reactions caused when they eat wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats. The condition is treated simply--by eliminating the problematic foods from one's diet--but a big problem at the moment is that the vast majority of people with celiac disease (about 1% of Americans) have either not yet been diagnosed or been diagnosed and incorrectly told that they have gotten over the condition.

You can currently set up your GoodSearch to donate to the CDF or the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University (or many other other charities) at any time of the year--so consider adding GoodSearch to your bookmarks or toolbar. So far I've raised several pennies just by trying out the system! Woo-hoo!!

In case you don't think a penny can make a difference to anyone, check out this. (Here's some context.)
