Low-Cost Press Release Promotion Raises $50 for Charity – Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Recipient of’s January Special Proceeds’s January 2007 press release promotion raked in $50 for charity. The special was so successful that company president Kathy Kehrli is continuing it throughout the first quarter of the year.

Scranton, PA (PRWeb) February 7, 2007 — Last month, offered discount press releases to all its customers, with $10 from each one completed earmarked for charity. The promotion managed to bring in fifty philanthropic dollars, which Kehrli passed along to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). The initiative proved so popular and personally rewarding, in fact, that Kehrli plans to continue reserving for charity $10 from every press release she completes until at least the end of March. Individuals and businesses who would like to help her in her charitable endeavors can order a press release through her Web site:

“When I came up with the press release promotion, I had no idea how it would be received. The response, however, has been overwhelming, so much so that I plan to continue giving to charity a portion of every press release I write throughout the first quarter of the year,” Kehrli says. Why MADD as the recipient of her generosity? “I wanted to choose an organization that held personal significance for me. I lost my mother to a drunk driver twenty years ago. You can’t get much more personal than that, so the contribution was made in her memory,” explains Kehrli.’s clients have responded quite favorably to the concept. One of her current press release clients has even agreed to match her contribution. With four press release slots in Kehrli’s schedule already filled, February is shaping up to exceed January’s mark.

Although is now charging its regular press release price, the company will be setting aside a portion of all profits until at least the end of March. If interest remains high, Kehrli may extend the promotion throughout the remainder of the year. Although she hasn’t decided whether she’ll keep donating to MADD or share the wealth with other charitable organizations, Kehrli does make one promise: If you order a press release from, $10 of your purchase price is guaranteed to go to a good cause.

Individuals or businesses who would like to take advantage of’s charitable press release promotion can email Kehrli at with their request. A press release questionnaire will be forwarded to all respondents so Kehrli can tailor her writing to their specific requirements.
