ATTENTION DOMAINERS: Let's Come-Together And Help Those in Need in Haiti!

As you all know, Haiti was devastated by a terrible earthquake this week and countries around the world are doing what they can to help. Did you know that there is a way that YOU can help as a domainer? Sean from DDC told me about a great program they are using with their domains to help give-back – and as Domainers we should all be doing the same! Red Cross has a Mobile Giving Program that makes it unbelievably easy to donate money to the relief effort by simply sending a text message. The great thing is you can promote this service on your website and help encourage others to give money to the relief effort.

Feel free to grab the banner located above and put it on as many of your sites as you can! I will be putting this on many of my sites over the next few days and I can tell you – every little bit counts! If you want to see an example from the DDC Portfolio take a look at

Thanks to DDC for starting the trend and I hope that each and every one of you does the same. It’s not often that we get a chance to take a step-back from our busy lives and do something that really helps others but this is a great example of how we can all make a difference! You can find-out more about the program here.

    Done. Since most domaining blogs are monetized via 125*125 banners, I’ve created something you guys can use. Here it is:

    The banners can take people to this link (where more info is provided):

    Donating is also possible by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish) and aside from that, you can also visit the page I’ve mentioned previously and click on the “Donate Now” button.
