Donate to charity, get a sponsor spot!

Remember the starfish post? Our world has so many needs. I often see that and get paralyzed by the fact I can not FIX all of them. So I sit and do nothing. Yeah. Lotta good that does.

We have to be like the man throwing starfish back in the ocean. Can't save them all, but we can make a difference in the life of that one.
Thus my plan for how I could use my little blog and abilities to do a little drop of good in the world. Sponsor spots (or ads) on my blog are available for $5 a month. But we're going to try something different this time.

For September, there will be FIVE sponsor spots available.
The spots on my blog are free, if you make a donation to the designated charity of the month.

This month's charity is March of Dimes. March of Dimes funds research, promotes healthy pregnancies, and offers support to moms and babies facing a stay in the NICU.

Want to claim one of the FIVE (only five!) sponsor spots available for this month? Here's how:

  • Email me *before* making the donation. zucchinisummer at gmail dot com
  • Once you've received confirmation back from me that you are one of the first five, then you will go ahead and make your donation to March of Dimes. $5 is my suggested amount and the minimum to get a blog sponsor spot here. Of course should you feel like giving more to this charity, go ahead.
  • March of Dimes sends email receipts almost immediately for donations. Forward the receipt to me along with your html code for the ad. Presto! You'll be on the sponsor role for all of September!

--A few boring details--

ANYONE can go donate to March of Dimes, that would be wonderful. But only if you have received confirmation from me first will you get an ad on here.

In order to have your ad on this blog, it must be clean/family-friendly. I reserve the right to restrict ads that I deem inappropriate or in contrast with my values. This has never been a problem here, but if you aren't quite sure, you can always ask ahead of time!

I am in no way affiliated with, sponsored by, or compensated by the March of Dimes. It is simply a charity near to our hearts.

A different charity will be chosen next month. If you don't get in this month's, be on the watch in mid-September for the info on the new charity and how to get a sponsor spot!

This month we could raise $25 or more for the March of Dimes!
Open NOW, go ahead and email me to join in! zucchinisummer at gmail dot com

You can make a difference!
