    Reading the article, "ad" is probably correct. It is talking about an advertisement for a charity which lists celebrities who support the charity. The only issue might be "sign" for allowing his name to be printed in the ad, unless they are printing actually signatures. ;)

    If someone famous supports your cause, that makes other people want to do the same so advertising that famous people support your cause is frequently done. The advertisers cannot use someone's name without the person's permission. The author has not given permission for his name to appear in advertising even though he seems to support the cause.

    Many thanks for this explanation :)
