Charity Link Meme

WOSPCharity is important and charity organisations need some link love just like every other site on the net. What better than a charity link meme.
This also helps me highlight a charity I have supported for all the 14 years I have been over here in Poland, that has actually grown to be the largest charity in the country.

The meme was started over at SEO Refugee by Skitzoo, and I have been tagged by Marc at My Credit Group, and Andy Beal at Marketing Pilgrim who notes that a link from his previously mothballed personal blog wouldn’t be very charitable.

The rules are simple, copy the list of charities and links (grab it from whomever tags you) and add your 5 favorite charities or non-profit organizations to the end (link to their sites with anchor text of the causes they champion). Of course finish things off by tagging 5 other webmasters/bloggers and then publishing the post or the webpage.

Here is a list of the ones that have been before

I am only going to pick one charity organisation, but they cover a number of diverse topics and thus I am going to give them a few deep links. Whilst they are the largest and most popular Polish charity organisation, they only rank at the bottom of the 2nd page in Google for Polish charity.

In many ways each year they set up a separate charity fund, and it works in many ways much like the TV show for kids “Blue Peter” and their appeals, and more recent things like Live Aid and Comic Relief.
Specific causes are chosen each year, and all the money raised goes to those causes, so each year it is effectively like a separate charity.

I now have to tag people, and I am going to pick (on) some Europeans to get this branching out nicely.

    This tag train is a great idea!

    Similar to this train, we tried to come up with a new way of raising money at Bloglyne through our 1st contest of which we are down to the last 36 or so hours – There have been some great comments and I hope some new ideas which have come about due to the way we set up our contest.

    Keep up the good work!
