We are astounded to have reached the $100k milestone so soon. This certainly illustrates the importance our members have given to this initiative, especially during these challenging economic times
Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) September 15, 2009
http://www.TraderPlanet.com, an interactive social networking site for active traders and investors, today announced that its community has achieved a milestone by exceeding $100,000 in cash and product donations to various charities since its launch in January 2009.
As part of its mission to educate traders and help them become more profitable, http://www.TraderPlanet.com actively promotes worthwhile causes on its web site through its "Charity of the Month" program, where members choose and support a different charity each month via polls. Although the charitable mission of the community is a central theme of the web site, the primary objective is to provide a "one-stop" destination for members of the financial community to get the most current market developments, access a wide variety of trading resources, exchange ideas and improve their success in financial markets. Everything on the site is free to TraderPlanet community members.
"We are astounded to have reached the $100k milestone so soon. This certainly illustrates the importance our members have given to this initiative, especially during these challenging economic times," said Lane J. Mendelsohn, President and Founder of http://www.TraderPlanet.com. "The ongoing uncertainty of a recovery continues to impact the charitable sector's ability to secure donations. http://www.TraderPlanet.com remains committed to supporting charities on an ongoing basis, regardless of economic circumstances. We've found that the more profitable our members become, the more they are inclined to donate to charity, so that inspires the TraderPlanet team to remain aggressive with its improvements for the community."
