You may be wondering what theses ‘Ads For Good’ are on my site…Well, my blog is a part of the Good-Loop ethical advertising network. This network allows me to make an income from my site whilst also harnessing my community to raise money for awesome charitable causes.
Here’s how it works in a nutshell – every time you watch one of my Good-Loop video adverts, the brands pays (normally they pay around 50p per video view). 50% of this payment is donated straight to the charity you selected. 40% goes to me as income, and 10% covers the costs of serving the advert. So for every advert you watch roughly 25p is given to charity, for free.
What’s fantastic is that together we really can make an impact. Because if everyone who came to my site watched one advert, in a year we’d raise thousands for charity!
I have selected these three awesome causes to support through my Good-Loop advertising; Alzheimer’s Research UK, Meningitis Research and Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. I love the work they do and am really excited to support them, here’s why:
Alzheimer’s Research UK are the UK’s leading Alzheimer’s research charity aiming to defeat dementia. As we live longer and longer, dementia and Alzheimer’s is becoming more common. As an illness which a few of my family members suffer with, supporting research to beat Alzheimer’s and dementia is a cause close to my heart.
Meningitis Research Foundation: I had bacteria Meningitis and Septicaemia recently. After a while in intensive care in a coma, and after really scaring my family, I woke up and ended up coming through the experience without any permanent damage. Many will not be as lucky as me.
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home: Those of you who have followed my social media for a while will probably be aware that I absolutely love animals! Particularly cats and dogs. I recently paid a visit to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home on Valentines day, if you’re a fan too then check out this post for the pics!
It can be hard for us bloggers to make a living from our sites, especially because lots of advertising solutions out there are pretty annoying and would ruin the experience for our readers. So with Good-Loop I hope I can get paid for the content I create in a way that is respectful to my readers and also makes a bit of a positive impact in the world.
