GiveDo.com offers an interesting twist on fundraising for charities: it creates customised search pages that use Google to deliver results and advertisements, but with income from people clicking on the advertisements goes directly to the charities. This relies on persuading people to change their default search provider, but that's not a particularly big step for a cause you already support. One potential improvement: for Australian charities, it would be nice for the app to source results from Google Australia (which tends to order results differently), rather than the main Google site. Like previously-mentioned MyPetNeedsLove, the site is a result of the recent StartupCamp Sydney II event.
