All children deserve a chance.
Not just any chance, but a true opportunity
To have a childhood.
To reach their fullest potential.
More children are struggling with mental health issues today than ever before. In fact, behavioral and emotional disorders affect thousands of children right here in our community. And it is a sad truth that two-thirds of these kids never receive the help they need.
The good news is that treatment does work for those who receive it.
Child Guidance Center is dedicated to providing child-centered, family-focused mental health services in Lincoln. Utilizing a combination of unique programs and proven strategies to meet every individual's needs, we serve more than 2,000 children and adolescents each year.
The services we provide are available to all youth throughout the community, regardless of financial ability.
How to Raise Money for a Good Cause without Asking
Posted on 07/01/2013
Want to raise money for a good cause without doing anything? This may sound like a trick (or a well-crafted spam message), but we assure you it’s not.
If you have a blog or website, you can now raise money without asking for donations thanks to Adtruism. Freshly launched on Wednesday, this new widget originating from Dublin, Ireland allows bloggers or website owners to place a simple commercial advertisement and Adtruism (a nonprofit) transfers all of the ad-revenue to your charity of choice.
Created out of the desire to utilize our current culture of “slacktivism” online (which is defined by Urban Dictionary as “the act of participating in obviously pointless activities as an expedient alternative to actually expending effort to fix a problem”), Adtruism allows people to raise awareness and funds for causes they like by simply adding a harmless ad (of a size of their choice) to their site.
And, even better, the ads featured on your website will never feature dating sites, alcohol, gambling, or anything illegal or inappropriate. (And they won’t allow ads that use autoplay video or audio—yeah, they’re really on top of things.)
Adtruism also allows folks to submit suggestions of nonprofits who should benefit from this unique innovation. Only the nonprofits that they’ve been in contact with will be available for donations via this widget (but the list is continually growing). Have a suggestion for an awesome nonprofit who could use a boost? Send it in!
Sound too good to be true? We promise it’s a legit charity (they even guarantee that 100% of the revenue will go to the charities). They’re new, innovative and looking for support—go check them out at Adtruism.com.
