GoDaddy.com Reunites with Victory Junction for 2011 Donation Weekend Summer Camp Provided for Children with Medical Conditions
RANDLEMAN, NC (Nov. 10, 2011) – GoDaddy.com, the world’s largest provider of Web hosting, domain name registrations and net-new SSL Certificates, has partnered with Victory Junction for a second year to help provide life-changing experiences to children with chronic medical conditions and their families. Beginning Friday and through the weekend, five percent of GoDaddy.com’s online sales, up to $50,000, will be donated to Victory Junction. .ORG, The Public Interest Registry (PIR), will also be participating in the promotion by matching the funds donated by GoDaddy.com for a total donation of $100,000.
Thanks to the success of last year’s campaign, Victory Junction received the highest possible donation amount of $50,000. This gift allowed 20 campers the opportunity to participate in a 2011 summer camp session at Victory Junction.
In renewing this campaign with GoDaddy.com, plus the additional support of .ORG, a combined $100,000 donation will allow 40 summer campers in 2012 to enter Victory Junction’s gates for the experience of a lifetime free of cost.
“Once again, Go Daddy has raised the bar by being a socially conscious corporate leader and giving NASCAR’s loyal fan base an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children,” said Kyle Petty, co-founder of Victory Junction and former NASCAR driver. “Go Daddy gets things done and really does make a difference with their charity work.”
