So a while back I put up some Google Adsense ads on this site. More of an experiment to see how they worked. I haven’t promoted them or told anyone to click on them. I haven’t made much on them (I don’t think the TOS lets me say how much I’m making off of them.)
For the month of september, any money I make off of the ads I’m going to donate to the hurricane relief, probably the American Red Cross, maybe the Salvation Army, maybe I’ll just send it to my in-laws in Houston and have them go buy some food and take it down to the Astrodome. I’m not looking to make a living from the site, I’m not going to take paid advertisements or product placements, and I’m already donating money and blood to the relief effort on my own. I don’t have any kind of official charity setup, so you just have to trust me.
Update: Randy Charles Morin pointed me towards the Red Cross banners, so I’ve replaced all of my Google ads but one with the Red Cross banners. When I click on the RC banners, I get a “service not available” error. The deal still stands, all of my Google ad revenue in September goes towards disaster relief.
Update: The Red Cross ads are working now. They take you directly to a donation page.
