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 wouldnâ€™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 donâ€™t do enough personally to give back and this is a start. Iâ€™ve finally settled on a charity I can stand behind. Being a lover of the under dog and a hater of cancer I couldnâ€™t pick a charity Iâ€™d rather support than St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org.) With that, the only banner youâ€™ll ever see on Define The Cloud is that of St. Jude. If you’ like my content and prefer free and ad free, youâ€™ve got it. If instead youâ€™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: http://www.stjude.org/volunteers.
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 (weâ€™re on a shoe string budget here.) If you donate please leave a comment here with the amount so that I can track. Iâ€™m trusting the honor system on this one.
Disclaimer: My support of St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital in no way implies their support of me or my content. Letâ€™s not be silly.
