Alex’s Coupons Donates $3000.00 to Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation
Gig Harbor, Washington February 28, 2007 Technology News(PRLEAP.COM) February 28, 2007, GIG HARBOR, WA – Alex’s Coupons, (http://www.alexscoupons.com) a website devoted to providing the latest deals and coupons to consumers, recently donated three thousand dollars to Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation at the 3rd Annual "Oscar Night America" dinner held at the Triple Door in Seattle Washington on February 25, 2007.
Alex’s Coupons was launched by Todd & Andrea Martini in October 1999 to raise money for their daughter Alexandra’s medical treatment. Alex was diagnosed with Leukemia in November 1998 at the age of 10 months and underwent life saving Cord Blood Transplants in 1999 and 2003. Now that Alex has completed treatment, the Martinis have instituted a charitable donation program using some of the proceeds from Alex’s Coupons.
"Alex’s Coupons has grown from a small site providing a little bit of extra income to one of the most successful coupon sites on the Internet" said co-founder Todd Martini. "The success of Alex’s Coupons has obviously far exceeded our expectations and has enabled us to realize a dream of ours, giving back to the charities who supported us during Alex’s treatment." In addition to Alex’s Coupons, the Martinis are very involved in activism and fundraising on behalf of several cancer related charities, including the National Childrens Cancer Society and Corporate Angel Network.
"We are very grateful that the Martinis are able to help us brighten the lives of other seriously ill children in Washington State," said Michelle Worden, board president. "The Martini family is a wonderful example that childhood illness can be lightened for each member through Starlight's innovative programs. We are honored that the Martini family, including their two children (Alex 9 and Nick 4), attended Oscar Night 2007 in Seattle and contributed so generously."
