Wirefly Launches Social Media Fundraiser to Benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure®

October 4, 2011

Pledges $1 for Every New Facebook Fan in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 04, 2011

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Wirefly (http://www.wirefly.com), the Internetâs leading authorized retailer of cell phones, smartphones and cell phone plans, is pleased to announce the launch of its very first social media fundraising initiative benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer awareness movement. During October, Wirefly has pledged to contribute a $1.00 donation to Susan G. Komen for every new fan who â˜Likesâ Wireflyâs Facebook page.

âœOne in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime,â said Dave Rook, chief marketing officer of Simplexity, Wireflyâs parent company. âœThatâs a devastating statistic, which is why this October, to coincide with our eighth anniversary, weâll be donating one dollar to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every new Facebook fan we acquire.â

Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness month until October 31, Wirefly is encouraging Facebook members to take action and support the worldâs largest breast cancer organization. Simply go to http://www.wirefly.com, look for the pink box and click â˜Likeâ and Wirefly will donate $1.00 to the cause. At the end of the month, Wirefly will present a check to Komen, reflecting the total number of â˜Likesâ received during the promotion, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $25,000.

âœWe are so excited about Wireflyâs commitment to helping us in our mission to end breast cancer forever,â said Margo K. Lucero, vice president, business development & partnerships. âœPartnering with the Internetâs leading retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans is a great opportunity, and we hope that as people engage with Wirefly, they will also be inspired to take action and get screened.â

Each new Wirefly Facebook fan will not only initiate a donation to breast cancer research, but they can also learn about discounted wireless phones and services for themselves. October is, coincidentally, also Wireflyâs eighth anniversary. The Wirefly Anniversary Sale featuring great deals on the latest cell phones and smartphones, will also run throughout the month and it is not necessary to be a Facebook fan of Wirefly to save big money. Popular Android-powered devices will be available at amazing prices, such as the DROID Charge 4G from Samsung and LG Revolution 4G.

To become a â˜fanâ of Wirefly, for additional information regarding this worthwhile social media fundraiser, or to visit the Wirefly Anniversary Sale, go to wirefly.com.
