Finding a way to donate this holiday season has been weighing heavily on me. We may not have a big amount of leftover income after all our bills are paid each month, but the need to give SOMETHING is there. So far I was able to donate a gift card to a family that hit a rough patch this year and while it wasn’t much I’m sure it was appreciated. Then it hit me that there was a way YOU could help me earn money to donate to a charity without it costing anything extra. As a blogger & “influencer” I’m able to earn extra money if someone shops through my unique links, AKA affiliate links. So this year I’m offering up ALL affiliate income earned on orders placed today, December 5 through December 22. On December 23 I will tally all earnings and make a cash donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Why Ronald McDonald House? This charity stands out for one because of it’s high rating and also because I had the opportunity to volunteer and work together on a couple projects a few years ago. Another reason this charity holds a special place in my heart is because of their mission to keep families together in times of hospitalization and crisis. There was a reassuring feeling knowing that while our first baby stayed in the NICU we could have been able to sleep nearby thanks to RMD.
So how does it work… Below is a list of all the retailers I currently have affiliate and referral links through. If you shop and order through these links I can earn on average up to 10% per sale or a flat rate on referral sign-ups. You must stay on the same device (phone/computer) that you’ve clicked from in order for me to get the sale. Using these links costs you absolutely nothing extra.
