Alex's Coupons Donates $1000.00
to Children’s Cancer
December 22, 2005,
GIG HARBOR, WA — Alex's Coupons, (www.alexscoupons.com)
a website devoted to providing the latest deals and coupons to
consumers, donated one thousand dollars to the Children’s Cancer
Lifeline on December 20, 2005.
Alex’s Coupons was launched by Todd & Andrea Martini in October
1999. The inspiration for the site was their daughter Alexandra,
who was diagnosed with Leukemia in November 1998 at the age of 10
months. In September 1999 the Martini family relocated
cross-country to Durham NC, so Alex could undergo a lifesaving
Cord Blood Transplant. During that time the Martinis’ financial
situation was very precarious. At the suggestion of a friend, Todd
Martini started Affiliates for Alex, a collection of affiliate
links designed to raise money for Alex’s transplant. This website
would later evolve into Alex’s Coupons. Over the last six years
Alex’s Coupons has provided coupons and deals to millions of
consumers, while educating them about Childhood Cancer.
In addition to Alex’s Coupons, the Martinis are very involved in
activism and fundraising on behalf of several organizations,
including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Starlight
Starbright. "We are putting out this press release in the hope
that it will encourage other small businesses to become more
involved in supporting this fantastic organization, which helped
us greatly during our daughter’s Alex’s transplants, and has
helped countless other children with Cancer and their families,"
said co-founder Todd Martini."
“We would like to thank Alex's Coupons for helping us fulfill our mission of supporting
families affected and touched with children diagnosed with
cancer,” said Lisa Griffith, President of
Lifeline Giving from the Heart.
