Long time no post! Sorry we've been a bit lazy in updating.. But what with all the snow here in Seattle last week and finals & SATs this week, we've been pretty loaded with stuff.
But anyways, we're doing great and have a lot to work on the website. We will be redesigning the whole site in a while, and we have a social media campaign we're about to roll out.
We'll keep you updated, and thanks for the support!

Hey! guess what? I (Jack) just got a call from Yahoo headquarters in California! The product manager there at Yahoo Search BOSS was curious in what we were doing and called me to see. I was actually in the middle of a DECA conference, where I took 2nd and qualified for state, but I was way more excited that someone from Yahoo noticed us! Haha. Hopefully we can work with them soon to provide you guys with great quality search results and help us get the most donations out of each search. Wish us luck!

Hey! What's up? A lot's been up with us, especially today! I (Jack) just had an interview with the NW Asian Weekly (..haha :) ) and our featured story on Puget Sound Business Journal went out in circulation today! We were excited about this one because they even sent like a photographer to our office (my house) and had a photoshoot! Haha, we thought it was pretty cool. Here's an online version, but you have to pay to view all of it... More press is coming!

We just wrote off our second check! It's for $80 and it goes to Pilgrim Africa, which was our December charity of the month. Our purely-website-generated donation will go towards providing malaria prevention for people in Uganda!
Oh, and I'm pretty sure our very first donation isn't in this blog! Here, we'll make up for it right now:
