Sponsor The Joyful Fox / March's Charity
Thank you all for your comments a couple posts back regarding sponsorship and supporting charities! It was honestly just the seed of an idea, but due to the support I received from you, I have decided that I will start accepting sponsors as of today. Why wait if there's a possibility that we could make a difference now?
Here's the plan: every month, I will choose some kind of charity or good cause, and donate 25% of the sponsorship proceeds to that cause. I'll also feature them in the sidebar, and do a quick post introducing the charity to all of you. There may be some times when I repeat a charity (my brother runs one, so you better believe they'll be getting some frequent love!), but I want to stay open to what causes are important to you, too. I'm always up for suggestions!
I'm very new to this whole thing, so there may be some kinks to work out in these early days, but I do have a sponsorship page set up in case you are interested. (Please excuse the fact that the ad spots are showing up in a random order - haven't figured that one out yet!)
This month, I will actually be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Elisabeth Oosterhouse Memorial Fund, in memory of my brother's friend who passed away two weeks ago. Funerals are crazy expensive, and Elisabeth's death has put a huge financial burden on her family, in addition to the considerable emotional burden. The money will go towards paying off her funeral so that her family can focus on healing instead of making ends meet.
Thanks again for all your support - I'm excited to see what kind of good we can accomplish together!
