FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The "Currency of Giving" Launches in Central Florida
Orlando, FL – (Aug 22, 2011) - Give Back Central Florida, an initiative of Give Back Nation, recently launched the Give Back (GB) Central Florida Membership Program benefiting non-profits, businesses and donors - creating a "Circle of Winning" within the community. This "Currency of Giving" is a new fundraising medium that integrates with the non-profit’s fundraising efforts in order to increase their immediate and perpetual fundraising needs, while increasing top-of-mind visibility 365/24/7.
How does the “Currency of Giving” work?
For the $20 annual fee, Central Florida residents can purchase the Give Back Central Florida Membership Kits from participating charities or online at www.givebackmembership.com. Once the membership card is activated, donors can display their membership cards for immediate savings on travel, shopping, dining, and entertainment at hundreds of participating merchants. The Give Back (GB) Merchant Directory is conveniently displayed on the website or, for smart phone users, on the free GB Layer App. Net proceeds from the annual GB Membership fees go to the non-profit involved.
Merchants, who join the Give Back (GB) Merchant Network, gain additional exposure and see an increase in traffic from the thousands of GB Members. It also allows businesses to set aside short shelf life advertising for a 365/24/7 advertising alternative. For a nominal marketing fee, most of which goes to the selected charity, they place their corporate logos on the annual membership card, the card jacket and the charity landing page at http://www.givebackmembership.com.
“We look forward to working with Give Back Central Florida to raise awareness and funds for our organization,” states Joni Smith, Chief Professional Officer of The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake and Sumter Counties. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with our area merchants and businesses through this program as well.”
“The GB Membership Program was designed to help charities raise funds more efficiently while continuously exposing their causes,” states Kyle Gregory, President of Give Back Nation. “So much time and energy are put into labor-intensive events; creating marginal returns. The GB Membership Program can be integrated into those events or even be a valid alternative. By year end, we intend to distribute over 30,000 Give Back Central Florida Memberships through selected charities, creating more than $600,000 in new fundraising dollars while boosting our local economy by motivating new spending."

Give Back Central Florida Initiative Launches to Create Bigger Waves of Giving in the Community
Orlando, FL – (August 18, 2011) - Give Back Central Florida (www.givebackcentralflorida.com), an initiative of Give Back Nation, recently launched in the Central Florida Community. Their mission is to create bigger waves of giving through collaboration between the media, local government, celebrities, sports, businesses and charities in the Central Florida community.
"There is strength in numbers," states Kyle C. Gregory, President of Give Back Nation. "The Central Florida Initiative was designed to help raise awareness for hundreds of non-profits by creating one resource for thousands of Central Florida residents to be introduced to their organizations. They can learn about new programs and resources and most importantly the opportunity to “Give Back” to their community. Our goal is to raise an additional $1million for selected charities that support children, health, hunger and military families in Central Florida by year-end."
Give Back Central Florida Month: October has been designated as Give Back Central Florida Month. The goal is to start the year-end "giving season" early. During October, Give Back Central Florida will be exposing selected non-profits and their events through its media campaign summarized at http://www.givebackcentralflorida.com/ and its social media sites.
The Give Back (GB) Business Pledge: Non-profits gather substantial fundraising benefits from corporate partners each year, but most of the time the public is unaware. The GB Business Pledge was created to expose these philanthropic businesses who "Give Back" at least 5% of their gross earnings so that they can be properly recognized.
The Give Back Membership - The Currency of Giving: The Give Back Membership Program (took comma out) is creating a "Circle of Winning" in the Central Florida Community. It is designed to help non-profits receive immediate and perpetual fundraising dollars as donors purchase and renew their annual $20 memberships. Each GB Member receives unlimited, year-round savings on travel, shopping, dining and entertainment at hundreds of local merchants across Central Florida. In turn, merchants receive repeat traffic from thousands of GB Members as they provide immediate savings when GB Membership cards are displayed. Non-profits can also receive additional sponsorship funds from their corporate partners as they purchase logo placement space on their custom-designed GB Membership cards, card jackets and landing page at givebackmembership.com.
