FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Innovative Fund Raising Website Clicks! For Cystic Fibrosis is Launched.
Clicks! for the Cause, Inc. has officially announced the launch of their flagship venture, Clicks! for Cystic Fibrosis. The website, and associated tools, are now available to the Cystic Fibrosis community, friends, and family at http://www.clicksforcf.com.
Mount Sinai, NY Ã¢â‚¬â€œ September 4, 2007 - Innovating the way people give and support their favorite charity, Clicks! for Cystic Fibrosis has been made publicly available.
Clicks! for Cystic Fibrosis has created an easy way for individuals to ensure their favorite charity receives a portion of the profit from their online purchases. When an internet user wishes to make a purchase with any of over 400 leading online retailers (such as Barnes and Noble, WalMart, Dell, Linens N Things, Staples, and more), all they need to do is locate them within the Click! for Cystic Fibrosis retailer directory and use the link provided for that vendor.
“As someone involved in the technology industry, and the parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis, I was looking for an innovative way to fund raise for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation” states Clicks for the Cause, Inc. Vice-President, James Stewart. “The goal was to give people an opportunity to shop online with their favorite online retailers, as they normally would, and support life-saving research at the same time”.
Every retailer within the Clicks! for Cystic Fibrosis directory is listed with a percentage or dollar value clearly stated next to their name. This value represents the amount of their purchase that goes directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. By reviewing this information, shoppers can feel good in knowing the exact amount of their purchase that will go life-extending Cystic Fibrosis research.
In addition to the Clicks! for Cystic Fibrosis website, several supporting tools have also been made publicly available. The Clicks! for Cystic Fibrosis toolbar integrates directly into Internet Explorer, saving users the time of having to access the website. Additionally, a custom Windows Vista Gadget and Firefox custom Search Engine have also been made available for use. “Our strategy is to make the Clicks! shopping experience as simple and effortless as possible”, adds Mr. Stewart.
