NEW CONVENIENCE BUILT IN FOR FUNDRAISING!

The new toolbar, developed by GoodSearch & GoodShop takes just a few seconds to download.  More than 1,300 top stores including Apple, Best Buy, Gap, PetSmart, and Staples are pitching in and will donate a percentage of each sale to our organization. There's no extra cost to you and you may even may even save money as the merchants are providing us thousands of money-saving coupons!

The GoodSearch toolbar also includes a search box which is powered by Yahoo!  Each time you search the web, about a penny is donated to us! Here's how it works...



1. Download the toolbar by clicking here

2. Search the web directly from the built-in search box.  Each search generates a donation (about a penny per search) for eNVision!

3. Shop online as you normally would at any of our 1,300+ participating stores including Gap, PetSmart, Dell, and Staples.  When you're at the store's website, our toolbar will automatically light up displaying the percentage donated and any available coupons.  With our new toolbar, your purchases will generate donations even if you forget to start your shopping at GoodShop!

Please spread the word as we expect that this software can increase our donations five times or more!

We have already started working on our competitive show in preparation for the 2010 World Championships, coming in April! "Things are better than they ever have been, in terms of talent, hard work and the overall 'vibe' of the group", says Director Aaron Hines."The members have a lot of work to do in order to achieve this years exciting and intense musical presentation, but they are up for the challenge and are excited to see it unfold", said 3three- year vet Joel Scrivner.According to second year member Erica Shultz, "The upcoming season promises great things.I have never seen this much potential in a group coming out of Reno, and can't wait to see the new standards we can set as an organization.I am excited to see how the members, as a very diverse group of musicians, can grow as a family and how far we can push each other to reach new heights.I am thrilled to be a part of eNVision as we continue to further music in Reno with all of our accomplishments.???
