MILWAUKEE, WI, Sept. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Frendo announces Communication
Connections as Charity of the Week. Frendo is the first-ever fee-free
donation platform for donors, fundraisers and charities that eliminates
all fees to charities so every penny donated ends up in the pocket of
the charity and not in the pockets of credit card companies and online
For one week starting on September 5th, frendo will feature
Communication Connections as Charity of the Week. Frendo will
implement an extensive social media campaign to promote the many
accomplishments of Communication Connections and educate about how
frendo's fee-free donations can help provide early intervention for
children with hearing loss. Communication Connections has chosen one
of their biggest sponsors, Purse-Les, as their Featured Fundraiser of
the Week. Headed by company owner Leslie Van Dorf, they are committed
to the mission and thrilled to introduce frendo to their dedicated
supporters and reach their goal of raising 5,000 fee-free dollars.
"We are honored to have been chosen as a featured charity on frendo's
platform," says Allison Schley, Founder of Communication Connections.
"We all get dealt something in life, and it is how we handle it that
makes us who we are. That's why our mission at Communication
Connections is to educate, empower, and liberate families and children
with hearing loss," Schley adds. "Frendo can help us connect with a
new standard of giving so we can give people the services they need to
achieve their maximum potential."
The team behind Frendo built a stable technology that is safe and secure
and gives people the chance to donate as much or as little as they want
to their favorite charities fee-free and on a regular basis. In 2009,
an estimated $30 billion dollars was donated online, yet due to various
fees which range from 1.75% to 8% over $1 billion in donations didn't
reach charities. Frendo is revolutionizing people's giving habits by
creating free marketing and promotional campaigns for charities
predominantly through social media rails. Frendo turns charities'
donors into fundraisers through instant connectivity to Facebook,
Twitter, You Tube, etc. and helps charities reach fundraising goals
with an endless cycle of giving through frendo.
"We are proud of our unique platform for giving and are thrilled to work
with Communication Connections as we aim to further their mission and
help change the lives of children and families not just within their
community but throughout the world," says Andy Quinn, Co-Founder and
CEO of Frendo.
Frendo provides an online social platform that enables people to send
donations fee-free and securely to their favorite charities. This
platform is designed for people who are connected by their common
desire to take action and provide funding for worthy charities. Frendo
acquired Broker Processing Services, Inc. in 2010, a company with seven
years of experience in safe funds transfer. With offices in Fairfield,
CT and Calgary, AB, Frendo looks to be a leading source of online
connections for charities and their donors.
