100 Percent of Profits from Searches on redcross.ask.com to Be Donated to the Red Cross’ Disaster Relief Fund.

Internet search and portal provider, Ask Jeeves, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASKJ), today announced that the Company has teamed with the American Red Cross to aid victims of the recent hurricanes and other disasters. Ask Jeeves has launched redcross.ask.com, a special version of the company’s flagship search site Ask Jeeves (Ask.com), to offer people an easy way to help the Red Cross. Ask Jeeves will donate 100 percent of the profits generated from searches conducted on this site with a minimum donation of $50,000 and a maximum donation of $1 million.

Redcross.Ask.com features the same searching capabilities, features and experience offered at Ask Jeeves (Ask.com). The only difference is that all profits generated from this site will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the organization to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those in need.

“Search is the most used activity on the Web. With over 20 million users every month, Ask Jeeves felt we were in a good position to assist the Red Cross in its disaster relief efforts. Now people can contribute just by going about their everyday searching,” said Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Ask Jeeves, Inc.

“The American Red Cross relies on the support of people throughout the country to be able to provide food, shelter and other services in times of crisis. Ask Jeeves is offering their support at a time when the hurricanes have left thousands in need. So, tell a friend. Tell a family member. Then start searching and giving. Ask Jeeves has made it simple to make a difference in the lives of others,” said Skip Seitz, Senior Vice President of Growth and Integrated Development for the American Red Cross.

    PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT THE AMERICAN RED CROSS – READ THIS

    The American Red Cross – the thieves that they are – still has over $300,000,000 from funds collected by them for tsunami relief. I have just returned to the states after two years of tsunami relief volunteer work and I am sick and need help. The Red Cross has plenty of money but as they told me

        The Red Cross is a wonderful independent organization led by volunteers. The offer many services and hold fund-raising events to raise money. The Red Cross does humanitarian work every day. They do many other things other than disaster relief, maybe you should look it up before bashing the Red Cross.

    To Henry who says the Red Cross sucks,

    your post sounds more like a platform for a political rant than it does a true story. Sorry, it just doesn’t ring true with me.

      Check the American Red Cross web page to see how much money they still have. Find me one American survivor of the tsunami that had any assistance from the Red Cross. There is none> They are only interested in keeping their 9% costs – that amounts to 50 million dollars.

      Political rant perhaps but true!

    I have just crossed Ask Jeeves off my list. Any company who partners with the Red Cross hasn’t done their homework.
