With the final commissions from 2009 sales coming in Wednesday, I sent a donation to the Philadelphia Power Play from royalsteals.com's profits yesterday afternoon. In fact, since the site picked up a couple of advertisers last year, cost was covered entirely by advertising revenue in the calculation of the donation. In other words, 10% of every single commission that I was paid from a sale in '09 went towards Power Play, a wheelchair hockey club.
In the last three years, I have donated 13.2% of the all-time profits from the website to organizations intended to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. While the total amount, just more than $99, certainly isn't an impressive sum, I was proud to make the donation each year.
