How it Works for Our Community & Your Businesses
You offer a special price or discount to your audience for donations to your own Virtual Food Drive. They like your offer and are delighted to help the community, so they make a donation to your Virtual Food Drive. They donate online and get a receipt. The receipt for the donation serves as the coupon for your product or services.
For a “real world” example, see the offer by Dollar Cleaners, Donate $5 to the Food Bank and Save 10% on Your Dry Cleaning. They’re offering this in addition to their regular monthly specials, to help generate more buzz.

We, Nero and Joel, make it all work together. Nero gets all the details and does the copy. We collaberate and refine, then Joel jumps in to optimize and publish the ads.
P.S. Yes, it’s for free, that is, no service charge from us. If you’d like, feel free to make a donation to our Virtual Food Drive with All Smogs. The owner of All Smogs, Brad, has raised over eight tons of food for the Alameda Count Community Food Bank. He inspired this whole thing. Together, maybe we–local businesses–can make a difference.
