Media Breakaway, LLC Supports Autism Research and Awareness
$12,000 Donated to Autism Speaks™
Westminster, CO – February 18, 2009 – Media Breakaway, LLC, an industry leading online marketing firm today announced its donation of $12,000 to Autism Speaks™ (www.autismspeaks.org), an organization dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments of autism – along with raising public awareness about autism.
During the Moniker® Live Domain Auction at the DOMAINFest Global® Conference in Los Angeles, held January 29, 2009, Media Breakaway purchased two domains that were donated to the auction, with the proceeds being given to Autism Speaks™. The company submitted the high bids of $5,000 for one domain and $7,000 for the second, resulting in $12,000 being donated.
“We are thrilled to be able to help Autism Speaks™ in its mission by participating in this great event,” said Steven Richter, President of Media Breakaway. “One of the cornerstones of our company culture and character is giving back to the community. Supporting outstanding organizations and worth causes are among the most important and rewarding activities that we can undertake as a company and as individuals.”
The company provides support and financial assistance to a variety of charitable groups and other worthy causes throughout the year through its Media Breakaway Makes a Difference program. Since its launch in 2007, the program has provided assistance to a number of organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, the Salvation Army, the Denver Rescue Mission, Food Bank of the Rockies, and Denver’s The Children’s Hospital.
One of the missions of the program is to provide employees with the opportunity to get personally involved by donating their time and talents to a variety of charitable organizations during the year. The program includes two major volunteer initiatives each year, giving team members paid time off to participate in activities that have a positive impact on the lives of many less fortunate members of our community.
The next major volunteer initiative will take place this summer, when the company will support Habitat for Humanity and team members will donate their time to assist with one of the organization’s home building projects in the Denver area.
