Keeping up the blog does cost a few cents a day to keep online and by placing ads on Simply Shoe Boxes I can cover this cost first, which keeps more money in my pocket for giving, and then anything else that comes in will be put into filling shoe boxes or giving to those in crisis.
I do not expect to make much, but as of the end of September in 2012 the bills for the blog this year have been covered and anything that comes in after that will go into shoe boxes.
In the last 12 weeks I've made $9.00 (see below). That comes out to an average of $.75 a week or $39.00 in a year which will cover my blogging costs and fill two shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child (or cover the cost of another giving opportunity I want to participate in--such as making dresses or buying supplies for Dress A Girl Around The World). Those will be children who would not have been blessed if it were not for the ads here.
- September: $3.00
- October: $4.50
- November (to date 11/24): $1.50
I hope this addresses any questions or concerns you have about ads here. And thank you for visiting Simply Shoe Boxes, by doing so you are helping to give to children in crisis.
