New Flash: gives back

As a freelance writer, I’ve had the opportunity to write about a lot of great nonprofits, like the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, Denkai Animal Sanctuary, Longhopes Donkey Shelter and Guide Dogs for the Blind, just to name a few. I love these articles because it’s good to know I’m helping them spread the word.

This past year, I joined People with Compassion for Pets, a giving circle. In less than a year we’ve given over $1,000 to deserving nonprofits, and I only give $25 a month! This has opened my eyes to the fact that every little bit counts and it IS possible to have a positive impact on the world around us.

I began thinking of other small ways I could help, and then I realized that I’m THE Mayor! So starting in February, is going to give back to Colorado-based nonprofits this year by offering free sponsorship ad space to a different charity every month.

The monthly nonprofit logo will appear on the blog, and  HeidiTown will also promote this charity all month via Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn and wherever else the Mayor travels in the social media world. On the first Monday of each month, the charity will receive a blog post on, introducing them to the readers.

Because this town is all about “stuff the Mayor likes,” I will be highlighting some of my favorite nonprofits, and many are animal-oriented organizations, however, you are more than welcome to introduce me to any nonprofit you’d like to see on HeidiTown this year. You can either leave a comment here, or email me at

Each nonprofit will be asked/notified prior to appearing on

Stay tuned to find out what organization will be featured in February!
