    Thanks to your views and, most importantly, your clicks, NikeTalk managed to raise $4,116 during the month of September!

    The full amount has been donated to one of my favorite charities: EZCODE LINK STARTAccess BooksEZCODE LINK END. Founded by Dr. Rebecca Constantino, Access Books supplies underfunded inner city school libraries in the Los Angeles area. To date, they've provided these libraries with over 1,000,000 books.

    In anticipation of our donation, I contacted Dr. Constantino and asked her to estimate the type of impact that our $4,116 would be able to make. As it turns out, our donation will fill roughly one-half of a small school library or around one-third of a larger library. We hope to hear back from Dr. Constantino later on to determine exactly WHICH library our donation has helped furnish.


    If you'd like to get involved, there are many ways to help:

    You can send your new or gently used children's books and/or educational magazines to:

    ACCESS BOOKS
    3625 Empire Drive
    Los Angeles, CA 90034


    If you'd like to donate money, visit www.accessbooks.net.

    If you'd like to donate your time, you can volunteer to help re-paint school libraries in the LA area. Check this link for their event calendar:

    http://www.accessbooks.net/happening_calendar.html

    Thanks to everyone whose views and ESPECIALLY clicks made this donation possible. Let's make October's donation even greater!


    Feel free to share your favorite charities with us in this post. Each month, we'll select a different charity and, over time, we expect our list of supported charities to reflect the diversity that so strengthens and characterizes our community.

    UPDATE:

    I recently received a thank you letter from Access Books, and since YOU are truly the ones responsible for this donation, I thought I'd pass it along.

    great job as always Meth; this is actually something on NT that is good. makes you think bout all the people bitching "i didn't get the grapes; quality is crap, etc...."; their lucky to even have the oppotunity to get brand name stuff; most don't. actually, it would be kinda cool in the next charity choice would be one that gave clothes and stuff to the underprivliged children

    ^ CelticsPride34, that's a good idea. I wonder if we could get it in time for Christmas? Maybe supply shoes to kids?

    Anyway, this is good to see. I feel like we could be generating even more money (now I'm getting greedy), but $4000 is very impressive.

    I'm curious; how is all this money raised? Is it through all the advertisements I see, now? Thanks for reporting the impact of the funds. Often times, donations are donated blindly to a popular charity and those donating are told their money will be put to 'good use,' whatever that means. Thanks for the update.

    On behalf of Los Angeles, Thank you. It is very generous for you to direct a month's worth of revenue to on particular metro area so thank you for making it ours.


    I think I'll take you up on your suggest to donate books, I have a lot of good books and educational magazines that I read, as a kid, in good condition, stored in my home. I'll probably just take them down there myself.

    Oh ya, just wondering, don't you need to pay for the server so wouldn't some of that $4,116 go towards that?

    P.S.

    Is there a way we can encourage more clicking? Perhaps have some users dedicate some time to clicking? Would this have any effect on revenue generated? I mean, as I see it, that's basically minimal effort for a comparatively large payoff.

    If we can do this every month, then growing so big we need advertising is the best thing that happened to NT.
