We at Adsmarket wish you and your loved ones a Rosh HaShanah Sameach! We celebrate the Jewish New Year this September with honey and apples to symbolize the sweetness that awaits us in the coming year, and with way too much food at big family dinners, of course. See you in 5771!
Attention all you greenies! Normally we don’t promote offers on our blog, but this new green affiliate program has us involved in more than the usual way, and we wanted to share it with our visitors to help a good cause.
PlusTrees.org is an organization on a mission to plant 1,000,000 trees each year. They will plant native trees in areas debilitated by deforestation. The trees will be conserved for at least 20 years and the trees will not be used for any commercial purpose. In the process they contribute to local economies and educate local farmers and communities on nurseries and planting techniques. Through the purchase of new trees, individual participants directly contribute to reforestation efforts in areas in Central America.
How is Adsmarket involved? We are putting a portion of the proceeds back into the organization to build an Adsmarket Forest. So, every dollar earned by affiliates contributes to PlusTrees’ goal of planting 1,000,000 trees per year!

Hey Readers, here’s some interesting news from the affiliate blogosphere:
Just heard about Shawn Collins (of Affiliate Summit fame) and this very unique and cool-sounding 5K he’s doing in NYC for cancer research. He’s calling all affiliates to join him in the run. We’ll be at Ad:Tech New York one week earlier and I am particularly disappointed that we won’t be able to stay and join Shawn.
But hey, that doesn’t mean YOU can’t do it!
Read his full post here. If you’ll be in NYC on November 15th, get out from behind the laptop and get moving!
The Jewish holidays are fast approaching, with Rosh HaShanah this Friday night and Yom Kippur and Sukkot soon after. Like every year, we in Adsmarket volunteer our time helping the Shorashim Group (Shorashim means “roots” in Hebrew) by donating money & assisting with the delivery of food packages in Tel Aviv Jaffa.
The Shorashim Group are a group of volunteers who take it upon themselves each holiday to make a difference, putting food on the table of those who otherwise might go without. They work with the Tel Aviv Municipality, who give them information about who is in need of assistance. They do really great work directly touching the lives of many, and it’s a real privilege for us to have the opportunity to help them.
This morning a group of Adsmarket volunteers got up early to spend time delivering boxes of food to those in need in Tel Aviv.
More about Shorashim Group: Shorashim Group is a registered, nonprofit organization of volunteers who are mobilized whenever there is an important issue to deal with. We have no storage or transport facilities, and rely solely on dedicated volunteers. Among other projects, we meet twice a year, before Rosh Hashanah and Passover, with the aim to bring the Holiday spirit to homes where a smile and the ability to sit around a holiday table are rare commodities. Last Passover (2009), as a result of our volunteers’ devotion and efforts we delivered over 750 food boxes which translated to as many families who were able to sit at the Holiday dining table with self-respect and a broad smile. With your devoted help, we wish to repeat our substantial achievements this upcoming Rosh Hashanah.
We encourage you to donate by credit card on Shorashim’s secure website.
