Giving Free Ad Spots to Charity

Giving Free Ad Spots to Charity

This has been a long time in the concept stage and I have also been doing privately for some time now. This blog is giving free premium ad spots to charitable foundations and non-profit causes. The ad spots will rotate along with the paid advertisers and will fill up all remnant inventory for the rest of the year.

I thought that if I’m expecting around 6 million page views this year, I might as well send the remaining traffic as some sort of donation to sites of charities and other non-profit institutions. Compared to a single blog post that gets buried, a banner ad will show up everyday for the entire year (more exposure).

The first recipient for this project is the World Vision Development Foundation, Inc., a relief and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities worldwide.


If you’re a member of a charitable foundation or a non-profit organization and wants to get some exposure for the rest of the year, send me an email. Here are some basic requirements:

1) Preferably a registered non-profit organization with a base in the Philippines.

2) Must have a fully functioning website, blog or Twitter account.

3) Banner ads should be in GIF/JPG or SWF. Flash banners should support clickTag. Ad sizes should adhere to IAB standards (468×60, 300×250).

All remnant or unsold ad spaces on this blog will be allocated evenly to all free ad spots for the entire year. I cannot guarantee how much exposure that will be but based on my current stats and ad inventories, it could be somewhere between 1 million to 3 million ad impressions for the rest of 2009.

    Such a wonderful article! I have no clue how you came up with this’d take me days. Well worth it though, I’d suspect. Have you considered selling advertising space on your website?
