HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Click4Hope, A Community for Bloggers and Brands, Provides for Hurricane and Tornado victims through Fundraising with Magazine Sales. Kasey Trenum, Director of Click4Hope, created the campaign to respond to the American families suffering from the tornados that ripped through communities in 2011. The damage from those tornados was estimated at $5,000,000,000. Her Time2$ave couponing blog community was founded on the principles of making a difference in the financial lives of families. Together with Amee Cantagallo of Madame Deals as project coordinator and Joan Tankersley of JT Stylenetwork/Vividmix/Time2$ave, she is focusing on the Hurricane Sandy aftermath and the families touched by its devastation. There are many needs still unmet in its path.
Last year, Click4Hope donated $29,000 towards tornado relief centers such as The Salvation Army, Samaritan's Purse, and First Moody Church, Moody AL in the last year. Reaching out to national brands, Kasey was able to bring Don't Fret the Sweat to the program, with over 5,000 Degree deodorant samples donated and distributed by her blogging community in Disaster Relief Centers. Verizon donated $500 to Chattanooga Room in the Inn .
Working with Verizon Wireless, a company committed to supporting domestic violence victims and survivors, Kasey helped coordinate a grant of $500 to Chattanooga Room in the Inn, funded by Verizon's HopeLine program.
