Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
Social media company PITOOEY! Inc. (PTOO) will be supporting, and participating in, the diabetes organization JDRF’s “Walk To Cure Diabetes” being held in Tempe, AZ, on Saturday, November 2, 2013.
PITOOEY! Social Media Expert George Morales says as a social media company, it only makes sense that PITOOEY! engages in social issues and supports organizations like JDRF’s Walk To Cure Diabetes. He adds he is also looking forward to how the PITOOEY! app (scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2014) might also impact the lives of those living with Type 1 diabetes (T1D).
“The new PITOOEY! app will allow individuals to customize their lists of frequented businesses and establishments, saving money through personalized offers,” says Morales. “And the app is particularly beneficial for people, like those with Type 1 diabetes (T1D), who have special dietary and lifestyle needs. We're humbled to be a part of something so helpful.”
Sarah Amaral, Project Coordinator, JDRF SW Chapter, says she appreciates the support from PITOOEY! both as participants and as corporate donors.
“Volunteers are the backbone of a charitable organization,” says Amaral. “However every charity needs corporate donors, like PITOOEY! to help fund the research that will help JDRF move from Type 1 to Type None!”
According to its website, JDRF is the leading global organization funding Type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until “we achieve a world without T1D.”
As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF says it is currently sponsoring $530 million in scientific research in 17 countries. In 2012 alone, JDRF says they provided more than $110 million to T1D research. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
In 2012, Forbes magazine named JDRF one of its five All-Star charities, citing the organization’s efficiency and effectiveness.
The Walk To Cure Diabetes, being held in Tempe, AZ, on Nov. 2, 2013, and the corporate sponsorship of PITOOEY! will help support those efforts.
