BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Leading Internet marketing software company, ClickFunnels, announces a $406,000 donation to Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) and $132,000 donation to Village Impact at its sixth-annual Funnel Hacking Live marketing conference that took place earlier this month. The donations, raised by "funnel hackers" in the ClickFunnels community, will support the work done by O.U.R. to combat modern-day slavery and Village Impact to provide educational resources for children in Kenya.
"This is our sixth year bringing our community of 'funnel hackers' together to not only learn how to grow their businesses, but also to make an impact around the world," says Russell Brunson, co-CEO and co-founder of ClickFunnels. "We're proud that our community has raised more than $538,000 at this year's Funnel Hacking Live to support children around the globe."
This is the third year ClickFunnels and its community have raised money to support O.U.R. at Funnel Hacking Live. Since its inception, ClickFunnels and its community has raised $1.23 million for the organization.
"Our team has been able to protect and rescue over 3,200 victims of human trafficking, and assist in the arrests of more than 1,800 traffickers," says Tim Ballard, Founder of Operation Underground Railroad. "The donation made at Funnel Hacking Live will help further support the cause of eradicating child slavery here at home and around the globe. For that, we are so grateful."
This is the fifth year ClickFunnels and its community have raised money to benefit youth in underdeveloped, rural communities in Kenya through Village Impact. Since its inception, ClickFunnels and its community have donated more than $400,000 to the organization.
The donation to Village Impact will be used to:
- Build and resource schools
- Provide the opportunities and support that students need to learn how to be entrepreneurs and to start, grow and sustain small businesses
- Provide one-on-one and group psycho-social counseling for students
- Deliver teacher and principal training
"Since our inception, we've served more than 5,000 students by building 120 classrooms in 14 schools," said Amy McLaren, founder of Village Impact. "ClickFunnels' generous donation will help our organization continue to develop Kenyan communities and provide a brighter future for even more local children."
