Can I post links to other sites in cases of like charity?

  1. On my blog, http://www.tearlily.wordpress.com I want to make a post about a website that you put in promo codes from the back of labels such as Chef Boyardee and then it goes to feed children a meal. Is that fine? and also what is the extent of posting links of other sites besides youtube videos and such?

    For example if I wanted to talk about hair prodcuts and put links up of a site that sells it and it goes to a link of where they are selling it as well?

    Thank you,
    D.

    P.S. I checked the Terms of Service but it didn't seem to specify.

    The blog I need help with is tearlily.wordpress.com.

  2. Whoops I made a typo mistake about if the site link is selling the product. Sorry
