Fundraising Blog Network Features Ideas, Causes, Auctions, Products, People and Events

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 31, 2005 -- Entrepreneur and fundraising veteran Annie Van Bebber today announced the debut of the Blog Network as a new addition to its online magazine "Community of GIVING."™ The online magazine focuses on information and ideas that help both local community based, national and international organizations raise money and awareness for their causes. The site was developed to meet the needs of fundraisers, as well as the companies who provide services and products to them.

"I have been heavily involved for 33 years in organizations that raise money to benefit others," said Ms. Van Bebber. "I wanted to share my knowledge and expertise as a fundraiser with others and to have a forum where people who have been involved as a fundraiser, either as a volunteer or an expert, could share their knowledge, too. The Internet and Blog communities provide the perfect vehicle to do just that."

The Blog Network features Blogs on key topics, including Causes, Ideas, Products, Auctions, Events and People. Van Bebber continues, "We receive a fair amount of email on these subjects and hope that through the blog submissions we can find roving reporters who will share their experiences with others seeking advice. By the sharing of this information we can make a difference in the dollars that are raised."

Ms. Van Bebber has been involved in major fundraising efforts for The T.J. Martell Foundation, The Neil Bogart Memorial Fund, PTA, The March of Dimes, AMFAR, The Leukemia Society of America and Recording Artists Against Drunk Driving (RADD) for whom she has literally raised millions of dollars. In combining her passion for charitable causes with her grasp of the Internet's potential, Ms. Van Bebber hopes to provide charitable institutions and community based organizations with the information and tools they need to raise funds more efficiently.

Annie Van Bebber is well known for creating revenue generating and brand building strategies, as well as for masterminding award-winning websites and properties.
