| From

WOODBRIDGE, Conn. - Mar. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "Global warming, air pollution, over-population - these are daunting challenges that we all face - but there is a solution. Here's your chance to make a difference," says Ed Begley, Jr. on the new Refunds for Good website: A well respected actor, as well as environmental activist, Ed has joined with Martin Sheen, Larry Hagman ("JR") and Nate Corddry from "The Daily Show" to support this new website to help the environment. Thirteen Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, such as the Dali Lama and Bishop Tutu also support this campaign.

Refunds for Good - (c) Send2PressRefunds for Good, Inc. has launched an interactive web portal that shows individuals and organizations how to claim telephone tax refunds on their 2006 returns. The multi-media web site also provides visitors with a simple way to donate their refund to three exceptional non-profits working to address global warming, end global conflicts, and promote sustainable development.

Individuals who choose a standard refund on their tax return will receive between $30 and $60, depending on their exemptions. Businesses and non-profits may receive tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the size of their monthly telephone expenses and other factors. A calculator on this web site allows organizations to determine their precise refund.

In May 2006, following the losses of five federal court decisions, the IRS decided to stop assessing the tax on most service. This tax year, ending April 17th, the IRS will refund with interest the monies collected over a 41-month period. The American public is eligible to receive an estimated $20 billion through this refund, if taxpayers claim it; half going to businesses and non-profits, and half to individuals.

"If we all do our part and donate our refund money to the non-profits on the website we can make a big difference," says Refunds for Good co-founder, Jonathan Gorham. "There is definitely power in numbers."

The Refunds for Good site ( educates visitors about these three U.S. non-profits, which are working to address different parts of our global community:

    * Solar Electric Light Fund brings solar power and modern communications to rural villages in the developing world for enhancements in health, education, and economic well-being - at the same time as protecting and preserving the environment and natural habitats.

    * Physicians for Social Responsibility is the medical and public health voice for policies to stop nuclear war and proliferation and to slow, stop and reverse global warming and toxic degradation of the environment.

    * PeaceJam Foundation works with Nobel Peace Laureates from around the globe to nurture a new generation of young leaders committed to positive change in themselves and the world through peace-making service projects in their local communities.
Taxpayers can use the secure, on-line form at to make a direct donation of any amount to one or more of the three non-profits. All donations are tax deductible.
