Wirefly Launches Social Media Fundraiser to Benefit Susan G. Komen for the CureÂ®
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 InternetÃ¢s 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 Ã¢ËœLikesÃ¢ WireflyÃ¢s Facebook page.
Ã¢Å“One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime,Ã¢ said Dave Rook, chief marketing officer of Simplexity, WireflyÃ¢s parent company. Ã¢Å“ThatÃ¢s a devastating statistic, which is why this October, to coincide with our eighth anniversary, weÃ¢ll be donating one dollar to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every new Facebook fan we acquire.Ã¢
Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness month until October 31, Wirefly is encouraging Facebook members to take action and support the worldÃ¢s largest breast cancer organization. Simply go to http://www.wirefly.com, look for the pink box and click Ã¢ËœLikeÃ¢ 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 Ã¢ËœLikesÃ¢ received during the promotion, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $25,000.
Ã¢Å“We are so excited about WireflyÃ¢s commitment to helping us in our mission to end breast cancer forever,Ã¢ said Margo K. Lucero, vice president, business development & partnerships. Ã¢Å“Partnering with the InternetÃ¢s 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.Ã¢
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 WireflyÃ¢s 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.
