A request for YOUR help TODAY
Do you want to support this work in a simple and free way? Here’s how (& why) to do that this week!
Here’s the “why now“: Lead Safe Mama, LLC relies on advertising income (on our website) to cover a significant portion of the cost of the work we do here [advertising contracts currently cover about 50% of the costs of what we do!] Advertising rates (paid out) are higher this week (and this month) – because more people are shopping — but also because advertisers realize there is a “more ‘captive’ audience” this week (since it is cold outside, and more people are inside and therefore spending more time online). Consequently, increases in readership during this final week of the year can generate significant extra revenue to support the work we do here! This really helps to cover the costs of our work in the slower months of the year (normally the Spring and Summer, when folks are spending more time outside)!
Here’s the “how” (best way to help):
- Find a Lead Safe Mama dot com post that you like and that is important to you / that will be interesting to your community. [Either look on the home page where I have more than 100 of our top posts pinned or do a search.] Some of the most popular ones have been the posts about vintage Corelle dishes; chocolate; peanut butter; ceramic mugs; vintage Fisher Price toys; vintage Pyrex; vintage Tupperware; vintage character-themed glasses – things everyone seems to have and love (because of the nostalgia).
- Take a screenshot of the cover image and headline of the article. This is important — sharing an image with a link has a bigger impact than sharing a link alone. I will include several examples (that you can use if you like) with this post.
- Post the image on one (or more) of your social media pages (Facebook; Reddit, Twitter, Instagram; etc.) along with the link to the article and a few words from you about why this particular piece resonated for you personally – perhaps the difference it made in your life and/or the story of when you first learned about this and what you did with that information once you found out.
- That’s it. Thank you for supporting this work in this simple, free and important way! Not only does it help us cover the cost of what we do here, but MORE IMPORTANT: it also makes a difference to people in your lives – helping to protect them (and their families) from avoidable potential future toxicant exposure. Thank you!
