How is your Sport Relief fundraising going?

As we mentioned last week, Bing has launched a brilliant campaign with Sport Relief – for every 10 searches you do in March, we give them 5p. Just download the counter at and see how much you can raise.

Here in the Bing team we are, unsurprisingly, raising loads of cash!  To date, I have raised a huge £5.15 (I have been doing lots of searches to plan my Easter holiday!) which will already make a huge difference and could pay for a mosquito net to protect a family in Uganda from potentially fatal mosquito bites that spread malaria. Marie, who has been busy getting out of the office this week (and isn’t going on holiday!) has done a few less searches but even so, she has raised enough money to pay for a volunteer to visit a vulnerable older person here in the UK and help them overcome the difficulties in their lives.

 It is a such a simple way to make a massive difference to needy people around the world, it doesn’t cost you a thing and you don’t even have to do any sport – so if you haven’t already done so, please make sure you download the counter at and start making your Bing searches count.
