CEO Pledges Donation Towards Education of Taylor Armstrong’s Daughter in Wake of Husband’s Suicide
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In the wake of the recent and tragic suicide of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Taylor Armstrong’s husband, CEO Gary Kawesch, of VoxBox Inc. and Personixx.com, has decided to start a fund in the name of the couple’s five-year-old daughter Kennedy to be put towards her education.
About three months ago, Armstrong visited a Los Angeles recording studio to record her voice for the new Personixx mobile phone app, which allows fans to create personalized phone greetings, ring-tones, and ring-back tones using the voices of their favorite movie stars, television stars, musicians, and athletes.
Kawesch has agreed to donate 10% of all sales of Taylor’s recordings to be put towards Kennedy’s schooling.
“We know Taylor as an amazing person and a great mom. To help her and her young daughter deal with the utter tragedy, sorrow, turmoil of media frenzy, and financial uncertainty which has crashed down upon her in recent days, we will be donating 10% of our proceeds from her voice downloads to help securing her 5 year old daughter’s future,” said Kawesch, CEO of the company.
In a story currently running on Entertainment Tonight’s website, Taylor’s Lawyer and Manager Robert Thorne explains, “Taylor is touched by Gary’s selfless and beautiful act of unsolicited generosity. So refreshing during this most difficult time for Taylor and Kennedy, and the extended family.” The piece will be featured on the September 1st edition of Entertainment Tonight’s television program.
