It Pays to Promote #ItPaysToPromote


We plan to do this again in 2015, so please join us then!


This holiday season, we were searching for a way to introduce you to non-profits we feel passionately about. Throughout the year we have shared content that touches on these topics in various ways and for the remainder of November, we are happy to support them.

Here is how It Pays to Promote works:

1) You click on the posts that share the story of each non-profit.

That’s it. REALLY!

You see, we get paid for those little ads you see on the side of our posts and this month, we are donating 100% of the proceeds generated by each of these posts to the non-profit represented. The more clicks, the more $$ the non-profit receives.

If you share one of the posts below and 5 of your friends click, you just raised money for that non-profit! Cool, right?

There are also “Donate Now” buttons on each of their pages. If you feel inspired by what they are doing and would like to support their efforts, please do.

Thank you in advance for supporting these non-profits and let’s work together to make this a huge success for them!

The Martinez Foundation seeks to address one of the most critical needs in education here in Washington- improving teacher diversity. Washington has close to 65,000 teachers, but only 8% of those teachers are teachers of color (minority teachers). The retention of teachers of color directly impacts the drop-out rate of minority students. Research has shown that teachers of diverse cultural backgrounds can have a positive effect on the success of students of color. The Martinez Foundation is a public nonprofit with a mission to improve teacher diversity and the retention of teachers of color here in Washington State. Through scholarships, ongoing professional development, and early career mentoring, Martinez Fellows receive quality instruction and the community of support needed to be successful working in the teaching profession.


Camellia Network harnesses the power of new technology to connect youth “aging out” of the foster care system with a community of resources, opportunities, encouragement and support. Youth have profiles on the site, giving them a place to express themselves, share their goals for the future and articulate what they need to be successful. Individuals and companies from across the country are able to collectively provide the support these young people lack by offering up doses of encouragement, career advice, professional connections, and financial support to help them navigate their way into adulthood.


The Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF) was founded by Richard and Diane Nares after losing their only son, Emilio, to cancer shortly before his sixth birthday. ENF navigates families through their child’s journey with cancer and ensures no child misses a cancer treatment due to lack of transportation. ENF’s flagship program, Ride with Emilio, takes low-income, underprivileged families whose children have cancer and need transportation to and from their cancer treatment. ENF serves over 250 patients annually in San Diego and Orange County with plans to expand to provide transportation to other Children’s Hospitals.


Axel Project was created in honor of our son Axel who was killed in February 2013.

While our goal is broad, our first project is aimed at providing balance bicycles and instruction to Schools and children in need, ages 18 months to 5-years of age, to teach the basic skills necessary to get them riding on two wheels—with their friends, their family and forever.
