Alex's Coupons Donates $1000.00 to Corporate Angel Network

GIG HARBOR, WA - February 1, 2006 — Alex's Coupons, (www.alexscoupons.com) a website devoted to providing the latest deals and coupons to consumers, has donated one thousand dollars to Corporate Angel Network and selected them as their Featured Charity for February 2006.

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. Each month the Martinis make a donation of at least $1000 to a different cancer related charity.

"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 Starlight Starbright.

"Corporate Angel Network is supported entirely by contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations” said CAN’s Executive Director, Peter Fleiss. “Every dollar that’s donated helps additional cancer patients receive the life extending treatment they need. We would like to thank Alex's Coupons for their generous donation and for choosing CAN as their featured charity."
