Altum Employees Donate to Happiness is Camping

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - CommonHealth today announced that the employees of Altum, a CommonHealth freestanding, full-service professional advertising and promotion agency with global reach, spanning every marketing discipline with a focus on specialty brands and markets, has made a donation to support Happiness is Camping, a free summer camp for children with cancer.

CommonHealth (www.commonhealth.com) is the world's leading healthcare-communications network and a WPP (NASDAQ: WPPGY) (www.wpp.com) company.

Happiness is Camping (www.happinessiscamping.org), founded in 1980 and located in Hardwick, New Jersey, serves children with cancer, ages 6 to 15, and their siblings. About 400 children attend camp each summer. The organization runs on contributions and volunteer services.

The team at Altum independently organized a recent, group-wide fundraiser to show their support for the camp, ultimately raising enough money to sponsor one child for the summer program at Happiness is Camping.

Nineteen contributors -- including corporations, local businesses, and individuals -- gave items for the Tricky Tray fundraiser. Prizes up for bidding included free services, gift baskets and gift cards.

CommonHealth comprises Altum, Carbon, CommonHealth London, CommonHealth Paris, Conectics, Earthborn, EvoLogue, Ferguson, HLS, MBS/Vox, Noesis, ProCom, Qi and Solara. The organization also maintains numerous partnerships both within and outside of the WPP network of companies.
