Since their implementation, the ads have provided a very modest income. Google Adsense is set up to pay out only if the earnings are above $100. For this humble website, that means months between payouts. I certainly will not be quitting my "day job" any time soon.
I would like to put this money to good use, however.
This year, I decided to take the most recent payout and donate the majority of it to the Wounded Warriors of Canada. Some of you may remember this non-profit group from this past summer's "22 Push-Up Challenge". WWC's goal is to help veterans and first responders suffering from PTSD and other mental illnesses, as well as their families.
Their website can be found here.
This holiday season, I encourage all my readers to consider donating or volunteering their time to those in need. A little can often go a long way.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate this season.
