The Live Search team recently launched two new programs to help children in need, and we would love you to help us out. The good news is that all you have to do to help us is try Live Search on one of our “click for the cause” sites, and each search you do will add more money to Microsoft’s donation.

The two organizations we are working with in these programs are and Team Seattle. is a United Nations led campaign providing education and sports programs for nine million refugee youth around the world

... - kids

Live Search is a global business, so we wanted a way to help kids all over the world who are in need. Supporting and their mission to help 9 million refugees really stood out as a great way to make a impact.  Each search at results in a financial donation from Microsoft to provide help with education programs to the refugee kids around the globe. More info on’s work with these youth can be found at their Windows Live Spaces blog.

In addition to the money raised from the searches, Microsoft is also donating online advertising and editorial space across MSN and to raise awareness of the relief effort.

I'm not one to ask my readers to use our services but in this case I'm making an exception. Please check out to learn more about and perform some searches.

Thanks for your time.
