Fundraising Gimmick: Buy Bulls, Bears, and Pink Ponies

I’d like to take a moment to announce a fun new gimmick that I’ve created for donating to Seattle Bubble: Bulls, Bears, and Ponies. A lot of people have given some money to Seattle Bubble, and your donations are greatly appreciated. However, until now there has been no way to get a little recognition for your contribution to keeping this site running.

That’s where Bulls, Bears, and Ponies come in. It’s just a fun little way for me to say “thank you” to people that donate to Seattle Bubble. When you donate through the Bulls, Bears, Ponies page, you’ll get your very own little icon over on the sidebar under the advertising block, with whatever message you choose. It will even link to a site if you like.

For the full details, check out the Bulls, Bears, Ponies page. Have a great weekend everyone.

    i really think you should consider adding more advertising to your site. i’m surprised at how little you have. i think you can pull it off because you are so content rich and have established a large regular base of hits. i visit and that site is littered with ads. but it doesnt bother me because he is constantly updating. it’s just a thought. i know that you put a lot of work into this site and you should be getting money for it.

    However, this kind of reminds me of the Bible where the rich elite Pharisees made sure their coins clinked in the church offering bowl in public, while the poor lady gave her food money in secret ans was blessed even more.

    I’ve done United Way charity drives before and some hardly gave at all, some gave lots; but a good percentage that hardly gave at all were already tithing at their church or other non-profit organization well beyond the rest….that’s why we keep gift giving secret. It prevents bad feelings too.
