The majority of the product links provided are through amazon.com so that family members can easily post the items on their child's wish list, as recommended in the introduction to my Gift Guide. Amazon offers free shipping with a purchase over $25, so I thought my readers would want to take advantage of that deal.
As a result, I am now an amazon.com affiliate and I earn a small percentage of each purchase made through my blog. I have also applied to become an affiliate for One Step Ahead. I plan on using the commissions to make donations to local non-profits benefitting children and to purchase materials to use with the kiddos on my caseload since many of them come from low-income families who cannot always afford the toys and materials I'd recommend for them. My ultimate goal is to be able to earn enough to purchase a wheelchair-accessible swing for a group home of profoundly developmentally disabled adults who could benefit greatly from a calming outdoor activity.
Thank you in advance for your support.
