For the past five years, Tab for a Cause has harnessed the power of the Internet to empower Internet users, regardless of their financial situation, to help others. So whether you were a cash-strapped student, a working professional paying bills or retired, you’ve been saving the world, one tab at a time.
Our mission of converting everyday Internet browsing into charitable acts through online ads has resonated well with our growing community, and this mission is shared by other organizations committed to making a lasting impact.
Because of this, we’re thrilled to announce a partnership with Ecosia, the search engine dedicated to planting trees. Every time you search with Ecosia, at least 80 percent of its profits from ad revenue go toward reforestation projects in Burkina Faso, Madagascar and Peru.
In just 7 years, Ecosia has planted over 5.7 million trees! These programs help employ communities, restore landscapes and turn barren land back into fertile forests. So not only does Ecosia’s work positively impact the environment, it also has an economic and social impact on communities.
How it works
Through our partnership, the search widget on your new tab page is now powered by Ecosia. Now every time you search via the widget, you’ll earn a Heart on Tab for a Cause and the ads on the Ecosia search page will go toward their reforestation projects.
You can also install Ecosia via this special link to make it your default search engine. When you do, a portion of the amount raised on these Ecosia-provided searches will go toward the pool of money for Gladly partnered charities. While you won’t earn a Heart this way, you’ll still be making an impact.
The Ecosia and Gladly teams are really excited about this new partnership and we’re looking forward to the significant impact it will have on the rest of the world, thanks to you.
Happy Tabbing & Searching,
