2006 New York Giants third round draft pick, Gerris Wilkinson, joins http://www.NEWYORK.COM to promote a new initiative by which the company will make donations in the names of users around the world to charitable organizations, principally in African AIDS relief, global warming, and ovarian cancer research.

Gerris Wilkinson, the explosive and outstanding New York Giants Linebacker who was drafted in the third round (96th overall selection) of the 2006 NFL draft out of Georgia Tech (from Pittsburgh), announces his alliance with http://www.NEWYORK.COM – The World’s Greatest Website™.

“New York is the media capital of the world, and it’s a blessing for me to have been drafted by the Giants which has always been one of my favorite teams, despite my having grown up out in Oakland, the heart of Raiders Country. In addition, it’s a blessing for me to be a spokesperson for and be a major part of NEWYORK.COM, which is fast becoming one of the most important media/Internet properties in the world. They don’t call it the “World’s Greatest Website!” for nothing.”

Wilkinson, who projects to be an impact player for the Giants at either inside or outside linebacker position, was a 2005 All-American at Georgia Tech and was a perennial All-Conference standout during his collegiate career. Now, as Spokesperson for NEWYORK.COM, beginning in Fall 2006 Wilkinson will host exclusive chat sessions with fans in the New York area and around the country, he will showcase exclusive contests for chances to win tickets to games and to meet him in person, he will have his own section on the Website and, most importantly he will be promoting the public’s use of the NEWYORK.COM website to benefit local and international charities and causes.

“NEWYORK.COM’s charity aspect was really the driving force that made me want to join forces with them so enthusiastically. The company has developed a patent pending business method that essentially converts the public’s use of the website for any type of transactions – everything from buying tickets to Giants and all other NFL and college and pro sports tickets, to buying concert tickets, admissions tickets to Disneyworld and other theme parks around the world, to making hotel reservations, renting cars, buying plane tickets, to something as seemingly insignificant as making an on-line restaurant reservation – directly into a donation to charity in the user’s name for each and every transaction.

"I’m particularly interested in helping to eradicate ovarian cancer, and in helping to fight AIDS and global warming. Use of NEWYORK.COM helps with funding big initiatives like these, but also is dedicated to donating money for the local Pop Warner football team, church groups, school clubs, fraternities, sororities, and more. I want to yell NEWYORK.COM from every rooftop and I’ll be reaching out to my fellow pro athletes to do the same in an effort to make NEWYORK.COM the public’s first choice for on line transactions.”
