By supporting those less fortunate around us, specifically those who are not able to support themselves, such as premature babies, not only are we contributing as a company, but we are also doing so as members of a community
Wayne, NJ (Vocus) July 8, 2009 –-
Red Phoenix International, Inc., a marketing firm that specializes in outsourced sales for service-based, Fortune 500 companies, recently participated in the March of Dimes “March for Babies” in New Jersey, raising more than $250 for the organization.
Nine staff members from Red Phoenix International, owned by President Michael Mounter, walked four miles during the event. Prior to the walk itself, they sold chocolate bars and raised money from their family and friends.
The money raised by Red Phoenix International will help support community programs that assist mothers in having healthy, full-term pregnancies. It also funds research to find answers to serious problems that threaten babies. Since 1970, the organization has raised $1.8 billion to benefit all babies.
Red Phoenix International chose the March of Dimes because team leader and staff member, Lauren McKenna, had participated in the walk for years—and was a premature baby herself. To get her team interested, McKenna made an announcement and then conducted a signup. From there, Red Phoenix International started fundraising and getting donations.
“By supporting those less fortunate around us, specifically those who are not able to support themselves, such as premature babies, not only are we contributing as a company, but we are also doing so as members of a community,” said President Michael Mounter of Red Phoenix International. “We’re proud of our participation in the event and hope the money we raised can make an impact.”
Red Phoenix International’s next community involvement will be the JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at The Bronx Zoo.
