Cash for Clicks: Yule Log 4 A Cause

December 23, 2009 by

The good folks at The Chapel in Chicago have come up with an interesting idea to spread the word and the warmth this year. It’s called Yule Log 4 A Cause, and here’s what they have to say about it:

Many people in Chicagoland will go through this winter without coats, scarves, gloves, etc. Let’s do something about that. Here are 4 ways you can take part.

Those four ways? Members of The Chapel have offered to donate a quarter for each unique site visitor, so you have already given by visiting, and you can keep giving by recommending the site. Also, they give information about dropping off coats and scarves at their church as well as making a one-time donation.

It’s encouraging to see a church getting creative like this to address a problem in their local community. These sorts of sites have been popular in the past–FreeRice and The Hunger Site are two such examples. But it’s a great way to develop your church’s identity as a group who cares about local issues and putting an end to the pain in your city.

As of this writing, they’ve donated $331.25. Let’s go ahead and help them get that number a little bit higher. Plus, who doesn’t want to curl up in front of video fire.

    Thanks guys! The number has really jumped since your link love this morning. We really appreciate it.
    Next year we’ll probably say $1.00 per click as well as partner with local businesses to do dollar matching.
    Any other suggestions to keep in mind for next year?
