Give a Link to Charity

Alex Shalman at Practical Personal Development (a blog about self help and personal growth) is hosting a Donation Contest in which you press a button and he donates a dollar.

Well that is the line which I must put on my site in order for Alex to donate to charity. Yes, it is true. For each time somebody creates that message on there site Alex will donate $1 to a charity. That charity will be chosen by a random person (who put the link on his or her site) when the ‘contest’ is over.

I have to give Alex credit; this is not only a good way to give to a good cause which we like over here at – hence the ‘make life easier’ part, it is also a blatant attempt at linkbaiting. A quite successful one at that. is happy to do its part now and in the future to help charities and if all I have to do is create a post to do it…

I ask the rest of you to do the same and help good causes.

Happy linking.

    Heh, it’s not the first time shady tactics have been fronted by a “good will” motive.

    Well, at least he is trying. I have to give him that.
