St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) October 9, 2006
Based on an understanding of the difficulties of non-profit fund-raising and the personal desire of the founders to make a difference in ending Breast Cancer, Ribbon Nutrition has created an Affiliate Fund-Raising Program (AFRP) as a means to help raise money for non-profit organizations and to educate and empower individuals in the fight against Breast Cancer.
The purpose of Ribbon Nutrition’s AFRP is to provide Breast Cancer, Cancer, Health, Women’s, and Environmentally-oriented non-profit organizations of all sizes the ability to raise additional funds without having to spend existing resources to do it. The program offers non-profit organizations the opportunity to directly raise money through a “click-through” link placed on their website. Each time a member clicks over to the Ribbon Nutrition website, their “click-through” is linked back to the non-profit organization. From there, Ribbon Nutrition will donate 30% of the shopper’s total purchase to non-profit organizations. The program is further supported by customized marketing support that the company creates for each individual organization. To view a sample, visit http://www.ribbonnutrition.com/ad/young.
Ribbon Nutrition’s AFRP has several other unique features. A pitfall of many affiliate programs is that they work the first time when a member “clicks-through,” but do not continue to raise money for the organization when members go back to the website for a subsequent purchase. To address this, Ribbon Nutrition created a system where shoppers cannot purchase Ribbon Nutrition products on their website without “clicking-through” a non-profit organization or choosing a non-profit organization that their purchase will benefit. The logos and websites of the participating non-profit organizations are displayed on the Ribbon Nutrition website for the shopper to choose from and can be viewed at http://www.ribbonnutrition.com/locate/locate.php.
Ribbon Nutrition’s Affiliate Fund-Raising Program is also designed to offer more than just supplements. Each purchase from the site in October will also include a free subscription to the natural lifestyle magazine inPink as well as other educational materials on diet, nutrition, and other lifestyle factors that may help prevent Breast Cancer. Visitors to the website will also have the option to sign-up for Life Saving Email
(http://www.lifesavingemail.com), a free Breast Self Exam Reminder System and Healthy Lifestyle e-Newsletter offered by Pink Penguin Press, a non-profit organization focused on education and empowerment. Participating non-profit organizations are invited to send educational information to Ribbon Nutrition for disbursement with orders from the Affiliate Program website.
