Frequently Asked Questions

What should I write about?

To get a sense for the type of post we seek to publish, it is recommended to read our site!

Here are some topics we would love to publish more about:

  • The importance of donating to preserve our world.

  • Donation from the religion’s perspective.

  • The practice of donations in different cultures and regions.

  • The success of donation and charity in crisis regions.

  • Charity projects, initiatives and start-ups.

Please note that your post should not have been published elsewhere before.

In which languages may I write?

We can review and publish posts written in four languages, English, Arabic, German and French.

What should I consider to get a good draft?

  • Set your expectation to yourself to write a thoroughly-awesome post. Seek to submit a new and unique post.

  • There is no maximum or minimum length, but a post of 1000 words is a good benchmark. Try to write the maximum you can and edit down to the minimum. Your post will be crisper and clearer.

  • Write in blog style, with short paragraphs, numbered lists, bullets and lots of white space and keep paragraphs short.

Should I pitch you my idea before writing the post?

You are welcome to do so! Pitch your idea by emailing our editor team at mail@idonate.info. We are happy to evaluate your pitch though before you get to writing. However, please note that we can’t guarantee publication though until we review a completed submission. In this case, you are free to submit it elsewhere.

How should I submit my post?

We accept your draft as a Google document (here are easy instructions, don’t forget to give us editing power) or as a simple PDF format to be sent to our editor’s team at mail@idonate.info.

We review the content and feedback to you with an acceptance or a rejection. We might suggest adjustments for content and clarity, doing our best to preserve your voice. We’ll work with you ahead of your publishing date on edits.

Once your post has been accepted, we agree with you on a submission date and grant to you temporary Author rights, that allow you to submit your final post in the iDonate blog.

What should I consider for publishing my post?

  • Make sure, that you publish the version we have agreed on during the editing process.

  • Review your profile data and include your one-sentence bio as Author.
