This month’s donation was easy for me. (If you’re new to this blog, I pledged to donate money to a different nonprofit each month.)
I received an email at the beginning of the month alerting me of an impending donation to my local library.
The email was from Snoball, a website I featured for Philanthropy Friday in February.
I actually kind of forgot about my “snoball.”
I pledged to give $1 to my local library for every new “like” I received on my Facebook page.
It’s not really something I’ve mentioned a lot. It was just a way for me to give back when someone supports my work.
Once the donation amount hit a certain threshold, I received an email that said my credit card would be charged. Pretty easy stuff.
I chose my library as the recipient of the donation because it’s right around the corner from my house, and it’s a great library. It’s a place where anyone can go and immerse themselves in the power of words. It’s also a place where I can go for some quiet time (and free wifi) to write or bring the kids to explore new books.
The snoball is still in place. So, if you do not “like” another jennifer on Facebook, please do so now. Know that you are not only boosting my ego, you are also triggering a donation to a really great place to learn.
