For some time I’ve been looking for a charity that Define the Cloud could support.  I have no desire to try and monetize my traffic through ads and clutter the content.  I also get plenty of benefits from running the site and wouldn’t ask for help with that.  That being said I do generate decent traffic and would like to use that traffic to give back.  I definitely don’t do enough personally to give back and this is a start.  I’ve finally settled on a charity I can stand behind.  Being a lover of the under dog and a hater of cancer I couldn’t pick a charity I’d rather support than St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (  With that, the only banner you’ll ever see on Define The Cloud is that of St. Jude.  If you’ like my content and prefer free and ad free, you’ve got it.  If instead you’d like to support the site, do so by supporting St. Jude.  If you prefer donating time to donating money you can find plenty of ways to do so here:

In addition to your donations Define the Cloud will match dollar for dollar all donations made by 10/31/2012 up to $1,000.00 USD (we’re on a shoe string budget here.)  If you donate please leave a comment here with the amount so that I can track.  I’m trusting the honor system on this one.
