Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
MediaCrowd and its subsidiary DeluxeAds have launched an effort to raise money to benefit underprivileged children at the Hogar de Ninos orphanage in Comayagua, Honduras.
The Hogar de Ninos is currently experiencing a termite infestation, which has severely damaged the infrastructure of several buildings. Due to the infestation, windows and doors at the orphanage need to be replaced, which will cost up to $5000.
Media Crowd was formed not only to assist clients with internet marketing, but also to find a way to contribute positively and purposefully to society. Part of the company’s mission is to support and give back to the community, which is why Media Crowd has pledged $2500 towards the repair and has launched a Rally.com page to fundraise the remaining $2500.
The Media Crowd CEO Jonathon Cole commented, “Growing up my father told me, ‘You will get more joy from giving back then accumulating material possessions.’ At the time I did not understand the statement, however, seven years ago I visited an orphanage in Honduras and began to understand my father’s wise words.
My first trip to Honduras in August 2006 opened my eyes to how fortunate and blessed we all are. I could have never imagined the extreme poverty that people endured on a daily basis. It made me realize how much we take for granted and the importance of giving back.”

About Hogar de Ninos:
One afternoon, over 20 years ago, Carmen Beteta, 19 years old and living as a nun in a Honduran convent, came face to face with the hopeless desperation felt by so many abandoned children. Two young girls, ages 8 and 9, were brought to the convent by a concerned woman in hopes that they could find refuge there. Their mother had died and their new family with older stepbrothers was not safe. The convent was unable to take them in, but Carmen could not erase their fearful faces from her mind. Knowing that she had a key to her parent’s empty home in Tegucigalpa, she decided that same day to leave the convent in order to care for and protect the two girls.
That pivotal first day marked the beginning of Hogar de Niños, Nazareth, now an orphanage that is a living example of words like “love,” “home,” and “family” to 200 girls and boys, many of whom never knew what it felt like to belong to someone. “Mama Carmen,” with the assistance of a nurturing Christian staff, lives every moment of every day for her children, overseeing their care and activities.
