Charitable Donation - Advertising

Do you remember a while back I posted about the Google Ads that I put up on the blog? I'm sure you've noticed by now that I've been experimenting with different types of advertising here. (To date, I've only made $3.81 from Google Ads and they have been running here since January - I am contemplating removing them completely)

Way back in January when I decided to start selling advertising space, I wanted to donate all proceeds to an animal related charity. Finally this has come to a reality and I am starting to see the fruits of my efforts.

Have you noticed the Adgitize links on my page? One of the ways I've been advertising is with this. Adgitize pays a few different ways - publishing, advertising, clicking and posting on your blog. Because I do all of these things, I make anywhere from $15 to $30 (depending on my activity) per month. It is so very easy and since I was blogging anyway, it seemed the logical thing to do! If you are interested in joining Adgitize, simply click on the Adgitize image directly under the ProjectWonderful ad and above the "About Me" and sign up now!

To make a long story short, this month I started to recieve payment for the ads. I thought that since you all are such awesome people who come and read and comment on my blog ... that you might want a say in what charity I donate the money to?? What do you think?

I will take whatever suggestions you give out either in comments here or via email, along with a few suggestions of my own, and I will be making a Poll that will sit on my page for a couple of weeks to give everyone the opportunity to put in their two cents. I hope you will all participate. We will send to which ever charity receives the most votes.

Please note that all suggestions are welcome. If you would like to suggest a breed specific rescue, an SPCA or something else, please feel free to do so. Ultimately, the deciding factor will be the results of the Poll.

(I will, however, vito the one that I sent that dog to in April. I STILL have not received payment and am now forced to pay the vet bills myself at the end of this month)

Yes, but by your own admission, you are a tech-uber-geek.

I'm skeered to click on that there adgitize.

(I'm going to close my eyes, and cross my fingers, when I do)

I have complete faith in wherever you send your money.
With your kind heart and good sense, you'll know who deserves it the most.

I've been donating monthly to the OSPCA since the dawn of money-making time.

But perhaps, you could use the money for your fosters?

I think that the fosters are a great place to give your $$ to, but I am also really big on Puppies Behind Bars, great program, Glen Close and Oprah are backing them, so yeah give to the fosters!
