Westminster, CO - March 25, 2010 - Affiliate.com (a division of Media Breakaway, LLC), a pioneer in the performance based marketing industry, is excited to announce that is has joined with Affiliate Marketers Give Back in support of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago, June 5-6, 2010.

The company will be flying seven staff members to Chicago to participate in the event, including Jazette Pester, Jon Ringhofer, Brittany Bankston, Brian Chase, Sara D'Onofrio, and Jenny Frederick. Since making the initial announcement last week, the Affiliate.com team members have already raised nearly $6,000, with plans of reaching $20,000 before the event this summer.
In addition, the company's design team will be creating a limited edition t-shirt commemorating the event. The shirts will be worn by all of the Affiliate Marketers Give Back team members during the walk and will also be used in a variety of fundraising initiatives to drive donations and awareness of the event within the affiliate marketing community. Announcements about these promotions will be made on the Affiliate.com Blog, as well as on the Affiliate Marketers Give Back website.
"Every 13 minutes, a life is lost to breast cancer. We as affiliate marketers have the opportunity to help change that statistic." Said Missy Ward, Founder of Affiliate Marketers Give Back. "To that end, I am thrilled that Affiliate.com and seven of its staff members have committed to participating in the 2010 Affiliate Marketers Give Back, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer with me and the rest of the team. Affiliate.com continues to make more than just history, they're getting out there and making a difference."
Over the years, Affiliate.com and Media Breakaway have provided support to a wide variety of charitable organizations, including the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, The Children's Hospital, the Food Bank of the Rockies, and the Denver Rescue Mission. The pursuit of a cure for breast cancer is a cause that has special meaning for many members of the company, who have friends or family whose lives have been affected by the disease.
"Giving back has been one of the cornerstones of our company since its founding in 2001," said Pace Lattin, Chief Rainmaker for Affiliate.com. "We encourage every company in the affiliate marketing industry to get involved in their communities, whether it is through a group like Affiliate Marketers Give Back, or as a part of their own initiatives."
