Revenue from this site supporting local charities
« on: October 14, 2014, 03:57:54 pm »
The Brookmans Park Newsletter is now supporting six local charities with some of the income generated by the Google adverts running on the site. We continue to support small businesses in the developing world through Kiva projects aimed at alleviating poverty, but we are now diverting some of the revenue generated to local causes. Below is a list of the charities we are supporting.

Carers in Hertfordshire: “We support unpaid carers who look after someone who would not otherwise manage due to age or illness”

Hertfordshire Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre: “Providing therapy and support for people with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions”

Hertfordshire Children's Fund: “Practical and direct help for disadvantaged children in Herts. Managed by Herts Community Foundation”

Hertfordshire Society for the Blind: “Supporting and empowering people in Hertfordshire with a visual impairment”

Herts Young Homeless: “Supporting vulnerable young people in Hertfordshire for over 15 years”

Herts Aid: “Supporting people affected or infected by HIV”

I think it's nice we can support both local charities and support efforts to alleviate poverty in the developing world, too. I always wanted to use some of the funds locally but couldn't face the admin and organisational issues. The local giving site makes it so easy. You just add a PayPal account, pick a charity, tick the Gift Aid box, save and it's done.

By the way, if anyone sees any other Hertfordshire causes on http://localgiving.com that they feel we should support please post here in this thread.

If anyone has any suggestions for local charities we should support with the revenue generated via the Google adverts running on the site, please send me a personal message with the details and they will be considered. Thanks in anticipation. David
