Thanks to you, NikeTalk has just donated $3,656 to the UNCF!

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 
It is with great pleasure that I announce, at long last, NikeTalk's newest donation: the amount of $3,656 contributed to the UNCF (www.uncf.org).

We're proud to support the UNCF, the largest minority scholarship fund in the US, in its mission and we'd of course like to thank each of you who viewed the site in January and especially those of you who clicked on our advertisements for making this donation possible.

We at NikeTalk are firm believers in the power of education. I believe all of our current staff members have attended college... some of us even graduated. An investment in education represents an investment in the future wellbeing of our society as a whole, as today's college graduates will become tomorrow's leaders. This donation is something we can all celebrate, and I hope you'll join me in doing so.

For those who like to see proof of our donations, the funds were wired electronically this time out - so I'm afraid all we have for you is this screencap: UNCFDonation.gif
Sorry, credit card numbers have been omitted and, for those wondering, the contact name on this screen is that of ezboard's current CEO, who executed the donation on our behalf as indicated.



For those wondering why it's taken so very long to make this donation (our last was made in November), all I can say is that you'd have to take it up with ezboard. They've suffered some turnover recently and the person who was managing our revenue and handling our donations left the company to work for a nonprofit organization (good for her!) and two of our donations were held up due to communication problems between ezboard and our selected charities. It has been an intensely frustrating time for all of us on the staff. We've been working very hard to maintain NikeTalk, as always, and yet for reasons outside of our control we've been unable to convert that hard work into the meaningful donations to which we've become accustomed. As many of you know, every cent generated by our advertising goes to charities like the UNCF, and going nearly four months without making a donation, for us, is like going four months without being paid.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. Now that the gears are finally turning over on ezboard's side, we're looking forward to announcing a few more donations in the near future and, of course, many more in the months to come.


It's amazing what we're able to accomplish together with just a few clicks each, isn't it?

That's great - a really good amount to give to them.

Definitely a good use of NT's ad revenue.

Nicely done.

So if I just click on the ads once in a while, the site will generate more money?

That's right. Viewing and especially clicking our ads creates revenue for this site and we donate a full 100% of our ad revenue to charity.

That's why each donation amount varies. This donation was for $3,656 because that's how much we earned in January. February's donation will be for less because there are fewer days in the month, among other factors.

So far, we've announced donations to UNICEF, Access Books, Ettie Lee Homes, and now the UNCF. These donations total over $14,000 and we have another three donations pending that amount to over $10,000 - and we'll announce those once they've been finalized.

Just curious, does EVERY click count, or does it only count once if you click the same ad multiple times?

It would be nice if they did to show their appreciation, but if not its cool.

Great job.

Peace.

We have, but this particular donation JUST took place yesterday so it's a bit early to expect a thank you letter. Those usually arrive by mail and they have to be forwarded to us by ezboard.

Here's the thank you letter we received from Access Books this fall.

Incidentally, just yesterday I received an email from Dr. Rebecca Constantino, the founder of Access Books, and it seems that they've recently completed work on the school that our donation assisted. We should have an update with pictures and a letter from the principal to share with you in the next couple of weeks.


We've also received a thank you letter from Ettie Lee Homes:

I don't know exactly how AdSense calculates revenue (they don't disclose it) but I'm sure they have measures in place to prevent abuse.
