Alex’s Coupons Donates $1000.00 to PBMT Family Support Program
April 18, 2006, GIG HARBOR, WA – Alex’s Coupons, (http://www.alexscoupons.com)
a website devoted to providing the latest deals and coupons to
consumers, recently donated one thousand dollars to PBMT
(Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant) Family Support Program at
Duke University Medical Center.
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
including the National Childrens Cancer Society and Corporate
"On behalf of all the patients, families and staff of the
Duke Pediatric Blood and Marrow Program (PBMT), I want to express
our thanks to Alex's Coupons for their donation of $1000,” said
Jane C. Schroeder, Director, PBMT Family Support Program. “Our
unit, the Duke PBMT unit is the largest dedicated pediatric
transplant unit in the world. Here, over the course of a year, 100
children from all over the world face life threatening illnesses.
They are accompanied by their families and have had to relocate to
Durham and Duke Children’s Hospital in a last effort to save their
lives. Despite being critically ill, they are always determined to
have a good time whenever possible. We thank Alex's Coupons and
all other donors and supporters for partnering with us in this
