While many in the mommy/daddy blogging genre actively chase brands to create marketing opportunities, I write because I like to write. If any money can be made from this blog, I want to use it to support Team Diabetes Canada.
I have run Team D events in Iceland, Brazil, and Easter Island (and will head to Scotland in May) raising more than $25 000 along the way. I like to call what I do “Freelancing For Charity.” If I can make some money from these blogs, I want it to go to Team D.
Last year I was involved with a promotion for ING Direct. Earlier this month I engaged PayPal in a Valentine’s Day promotion encouraging people to use PayPal for their online purchases. I did that in exchange for a donation to Team Diabetes. Next week I will start a campaign for Skylanders Giants, again in exchange for a donation to Team Diabetes.
