Throughout this site you’ll occassionally find what is known as an “Affiliate Link”. These links refer you to a website where you can make a purchase. If you make that purchase from my link, I get a portion of the profit from that sale. I do this for one very clear reason:
To see more GOOD happen in the world.
You see, all the money that is generated by my website goes to support some local San Diego not-for-profit organizations. All. Of. It.
The first place the money goes to, is to provide hosting for these not-for-profits. I volunteer my time to keep their websites running smoothly and effectively. When they have trouble — they call me and I resolve it. When they need big new features, I make it happen.
The next place it goes to is to their general fund. These organizations are focused on empowering and bettering the lives of disadvantaged Youth in San Diego and that’s something I want to see happen. Whether it’s funding new adoptions, teaching refugees children how to write or master English, or giving at-risk youth after school activities to keep them out of gangs or other trouble; each of these organizations is working for the GOOD of San Diego and the City Heights neighborhood.
So when you see an affiliate link, don’t think “Oh, this guy is just writing this to make money” — well, I am actually. But the money is not for me, it’s for the kids, it’s for our future.
Some of the Not-For-Profits I Support
San Diego Refugee Tutoring
The mission of San Diego Refugee Tutoring is to achieve social justice through educational access. The goal of San Diego Refugee Tutoring is to provide one-on-one tutoring and holistic academic support to refugees at Ibarra Elementary School in eastern City Heights.
City Heights Runners
City Heights Runners, an initiative of UrbanLife Inc., is a running club for middle and high school students in City Heights. We offer after school and Saturday practices for students at Wilson Middle School, and also serve the Hoover High School Cross Country and Track and Field programs by providing off-season training and racing opportunities.
Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation
Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation was founded by a scientist and is managed by scientists. Together we have extensive first hand experience in Nature and we have seen how powerful the Nature experience can be.
If I’ve helped you in any way, consider Helping Me Help Others as well. These funds do not go toward my home or even my family — I’m good, happy, and covered there with our business at Impress.org. These funds help me help these organizations and the general WordPress community even more. Thank you for your generosity!
