NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION SPOTLIGHT

 

If your Non-Profit organization has an upcoming fundraising event, and you would like us to help you promote it in the helping hands section of our paper, please fill in the appropriate spaces of this on-line form.

 

The helping hands section is only for fund-raisers that have a specific date(s), but not for regular ongoing efforts to raise funds. All organizations have great events and schedules for helping out in the community, but we would not have space to provide everyone's calendar of events. So please do not submit events such as: a musical event, events with a fee for attendance in a learning class or other similar programs, paper drive, selling of items, events mainly to promote vendors with the only income being raised is from their payment for attending,

 

Space may be limited so please accept our apology if we do not get your event listed.

Let Us know About Your Upcoming Event You Would Like In Our Print Edition

If you have an upcoming non-profit event that you would like to tell people about

Fill out this on-line form and we will list It in our helping hands section.

Events that we would gladly promote in this section are annual events such as:

☺Single date breakfasts, lunches, dinners to raise funds.

 

☺Events that are raising funds for themselves or a specific need in the community which may include entertainment, social activities, auctions with donated items, bake sale, donated items for sale.

 

☺An organization which is allowing a group to hold a charitable benefit at their facility for someone who has incurred high medical bills resulting from an accident or personal sickness.

 

We plan to publish twelve pages for our October 22nd edition so if you submit your event information by Friday October 18th we should be able to include it.

 

       Cost of publishing have risen extremely high over the last year as the paper had risen to all time highs. This was due to the tariff with Canada that was placed on wood imports. While the tariff on wood imports has been removed, the cost of newsprint paper has never come down. This created a 40% increase in printing the Tidbits every week. And many other costs have increased recently, some from tariffs and some with inflation. Since starting this business in 2005 my electric bill has increased by 37% yet I have not increase my ad rates.

        I would like to increase them to keep up with rising costs as would many other business owners yet if I do I would not be able to retain clients. Other media outlets have tried to increase their rates but they have either reduced them since or in many cases offer huge discounts. What is a rate card if everyone gets a discount? By giving discounts, who knows if they are getting a competitive rate compared to their business competitors.

 

While in eight pages we do not have room to include any FREE helping hands posts at this time.

Please help us increase pages by doing business with our clients and letting them know you enjoy the Tidbits.

Also you could let other business owners know that you read Tidbits and recommend that they contact us to advertise.

 

If you would still like to get your information out to our readers, we can work up a classified ad for you which would typically cost between five and ten dollars per week. The cost is based on the amount of content you send, and we can make adjustments to what you send prior to your approval for print.

You can  submit your information by email to:
