Larger Search Box: Designed with the public's health in mind, Good50 has pre-set

How It Started
was launched in January of 2010 by Sunmee Huh and her younger
sister Dahlia. Sunmee was a 16 year old junior in high school
and Dahlia was just 12 years old. The sisters were visiting
their grandparents and saw that their grandfather was struggling
using the Internet search engine. So, together they created Good50 for
him over the winter break using Google custom search API. They
also wanted to give back to society through the site.
News & Media
"Sunmee Huh does not want to be the next Mark Zuckerberg or Bill
Gates. When she created the search engine Good50, her intention
was not to strike it rich or create an Internet phenomenon
like Facebook, which Zuckerberg founded..." -- Excerpt from
The Washington Post article, February
AARP Bulletin's wrote a short story about Good50. You can view the page here.

-- (Maryland Department of Disabilities,
Technology Assistance Program, Newsletter Spring 2010)
"Again, I wanted you to know your efforts are appreciated.
It is not the number of people who's life you make a difference
to. Just that you make a difference in the life of 1 is all that
matters. Just one is how it begins. Remember this always. Bless
You." -- Vic Linares, NYC
"I want to thank you for your Good50 search engine. I read
about it this morning in the AARP newsletter and have sent the
information to all my friends. I do have a Down's Syndrome son
with vision problems and know that this would be great for him
and his friends." --
Patsy (AARP Member, Orange Beach, AL)
"After reading this article I tried the search engine and
love it! There are times my eyes are tired and this helps. I'm
sending a link to friends who have eye problems!"
