Save the Children joined earlier this year and offer affiliates 9% on donations generated, capped at £4.50 on donations of £50 or more.Some charities already generate income from acting as affiliates of other merchants. Indeed, it is effectively the online version of the charity credit card, an affinity programme whereby the charity earns a fee for introducing a customer for the credit card company and a small fee every time the credit card is used. It is interesting then that so few charities have tested affiliate marketing. Perhaps they believe that they can secure sufficient online advertising and PR through donated space. The benefit of a professional affiliate programme, however, is that it can offer much more detailed performance statistics, compared to simply relying on donated space.The range of banner ads on offer from World Vision is very good. Apart from the standard sizes of 468×60, 88×31, and 125×125, they also offer ths ‘skyscaper’ at 120×600. The theme of the ads is consistent, and most of them include an element of humour. For example, “a goat is for life, not just for Christmas,” and “imagine the kids delight on Christmas morning… We didn’t say it was your kids did we.”For some reason the Great-gifts.org Web site makes no mention of the affiliate programme. This omission is a mistake: there will almost certainly be visitors to the Web site who won’t want to buy or donate, but who might be willing to help World Vision promote the site. World Vision has teamed up with UKaffiliates.com to drive sales and donations at its alternative gift Web site, great-gifts.org.World Vision will pay Web site owners between 1% and 5% on sales made by people clicking through from their site. Web site owners are given a range of banner adverts and links to place where they wish on their site. UKaffiliates.com tracks the click-throughs and actions of people clicking on those links, and then handles World Vision’s commission payment to each affiliate.Great-gifts.org is based on an idea made popular some years ago by US non-profit Heifer International. It encouraged supporters to buy practical presents for people in the developing world, rather than buy presents for their friends and family who probably did not really want them. Presents such as a cow, chickens or a sewing machine were on offer.

first_imgAOC chief executive Matt Carroll says Australia has athletes based overseas and training in central locations around the country.“With travel and other restrictions this becomes an untenable situation,” Carroll said.The Canadian Olympic Committee earlier said it won’t send athletes to the Tokyo Games unless they are postponed for a year, becoming the first country to threaten such a move in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.The committee sent out a statement Sunday evening saying it was willing to help the IOC search for alternatives, but that it was not safe for athletes, “their families and the broader Canadian community for athletes to continue training for these games.”The IOC says it is considering all options. The Tokyo Games are scheduled to start July 24. ___Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says a postponement of the Tokyo Olympics would be unavoidable if the games cannot be held in a complete way because of the coronavirus impact.He was commenting on the International Olympic Committee plan to examine the situation over the next few weeks and make a decision, which could include a postponement.Abe, speaking at a parliamentary session, ruled out the possibility of a cancellation.Whether Tokyo can hold the Olympics as planned from July 24 has been a major international concern as the COVID-19 pandemic has spread globally. The British sprinter writes on Twitter “does this mean that athletes face up to another FOUR weeks of finding ways to fit in training – whilst potentially putting ourselves, coaches, support staff and loved ones at risk just to find out they were going to be postponed anyway.”___The Australian Olympic Committee has advised its athletes to prepare for an Olympics in 2021.Ian Chesterman, Australia’s team leader for Tokyo, says “it’s clear the games can’t be held in July.”“Our athletes have been magnificent in their positive attitude to training and preparing, but the stress and uncertainty has been extremely challenging for them,” Chesterman said in a statement released Monday by the Australian Olympic Committee. The Spanish soccer federation and the Spanish league say the suspension of professional soccer in the country will continue until government officials “consider that they can be resumed without creating any health risk.”The soccer competitions had been initially suspended for two weeks, but on Sunday the government said the country’s state of emergency would likely be extended, meaning the entire nation may have to remain in lockdown until at least April 11.Spanish authorities say more than 33,000 people have been infected with the coronavirus in the country, with 2,182 deaths.___The Azerbaijan Grand Prix has been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

March 23, 2020center_img The Athletics Association’s statement comes a day after the International Olympic Committee set itself a four-week deadline to decide on a delay.Athletics Association president Christian Taylor and vice president Emma Coburn say “we’re imploring the IOC to announce the postponement of Tokyo 2020 Olympics much sooner than in four weeks’ time.”Taylor is a long jumper and Coburn is a runner. Both competed for the United States at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.The group says more than 4,000 athletes have responded to a survey it conducted, with a large majority favoring postponement.Dina Asher-Smith, the world champion in the 200 meters, has also called for a quicker decision by the IOC. ____More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 The Latest: Russia backs IOC’s plan for Tokyo Olympics The latest postponement means there will be no Formula One races until the middle of June at the earliest.The race at the Baku City Circuit was scheduled for June 7.The first seven races of the Formula One season had already either been postponed or canceled.___A group representing track and field athletes has called for the Tokyo Olympics to be postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak. The IOC says it will make a decision within four weeks and the Russian Olympic Committee endorsed that plan by calling for “complete support.”The ROC says “we view as unacceptable any attempts to bring pressure on the organizations in charge responsible of staging the games and to force them to take rash decisions.”Canada has said it will boycott the Tokyo Olympics unless they are postponed and Australia has called for athletes to prepare for a 2021 event.Russia was faced with sending a neutral team to the Tokyo Olympics under sanctions from the World Anti-Doping Agency. But those measures can’t be implemented until there’s a ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport, where hearings have been delayed by the coronavirus outbreak. It’s unclear whether CAS could still rule before the Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to start July 24.___last_img read more
