Advertisements for Charity

Posted: October 4, 2013 by jkleiman in Uncategorized

Firstly, make sure to nominate your favourite blog for this year’s blog awards in the post below this one.

Next… There’s an advertising opportunity for those of you who want to stand out.

100% of the proceeds go to charity, and YOU get the tax receipt!

If we get some takers, I’m going to make a post with banners of the blogs are interested, and I’ll be advertising them throughout the awards.

Here’s how to join: make a $100.00 donation to Sick Kids Hospital or the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and send me proof at jonathan (@) jkleiman [.] com. It’s that simple!

It must be made on October 4th, 2013 or later.

Spaces are limited, so hurry!

Here’s the form. You know what to do:

Good luck to all!
