San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2007
People may view internet marketers with trepidation but the results of a wildly successful fundraising event for the kids of Pioneer Learning Center proves the generosity of many. The fundraising effort involved two parts: first, the charitable contribution of more than 50 top internet marketers and second, donations from generous business people around the world. Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, whose own son has been affected by autism, coordinated the event with the web site MarketersOnAMission.org which allows people who donate to access the contributions of 50+ leading internet marketers.
"All the proceeds go directly to the Pioneer Learning Center," said Woo-Ming, "This is a winning situation for everyone -- the kids get the benefit of the donations, and the people contributing also benefit with free products from more than 50 top internet marketers."
The donation was launched in April, in conjunction with it being Autism Awareness Month. "We have been flooded with e-mail from fine people showing their support," Dr. Mike says, a physician turned internet entrepreneur. "I really think we also opened some eyes to reveal how prevalent the autism epidemic really is."
MarketersOnAMission.org was formed to help with autism in local communities. The latest statistics show that 1 out of 150 children have autism (up from 1 out of 10,000 just two decades ago). The Pioneer Learning Center is a school that specifically helps with children on the autism spectrum including Asperger's, ADD and other social integration disorders.
