Less Narcissism, More Cause

June 25, 2009

I’m so excited to finally have another purpose for this blog, other than talking about myself and my family! Sure, it’s a great outlet for me to express myself and a way to keep friends and family up to date, but sometimes it does feel self-centered, especially if I’m pimpin’ it.

Recently WordPress announced a partnership with SocialVibe, a website that partners big name sponsors with well-known charities. Now there’s a super simple widget I can & have added to my sidebar. I selected Children’s Miracle Network as my charity and Powerbar as my sponsor. Everytime any of my blog visitors clicks the banner and watches and rates one of the sponsor’s info videos, the sponsor donates money to Children’s. I watched one of Powerbar’s videos and it was actually rather informative, and they’re short, too!

It’s such an easy way to get money donated to a good cause! Obviously I chose Children’s Miracle Network because they help fund children’s hospitals, and after Skyler’s experience, I’ll gladly help send money to help other children get and stay healthy!

So, to all my visitors, PLEASE, take a few moments to click the banner in the right column and watch/rate the sponsor’s video. Your participation will help raise money for a great cause!

    After I added my SocialVibe Badge to my blog, I did a search for SocialVibe on WordPress and after clicking on 3 different links, yours is the first one I found that had a badge on their blog. So I’m happy to click and help your cause. It’s great having another purpose (and a good one at that) for our blogs.

    I’m glad you posted this. I’ve received tons of info from wordpress about SocialVibe but didn’t quite get it. Have to add it to my blog too. Thanks!
