Affinity Internet, the leading web services
provider for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced
the launch of its second annual Making a Difference program. The
program rewards Affinity customers who use their web sites in
innovative ways for charity, education or business.
Between now and March 10, Affinity will accept nominations in each of
four categories, with one winner and one honorable mention chosen for
each category. Cash prizes of $10,000 for the best charity site, $5,000
for the best teaching/educational site and $5,000 for the best small
business site ($2,500 for services; $2,500 for products) will be
awarded to the winners, with each honorable mention winner receiving
one free year of web hosting, provided by Affinity.
“The Making a Difference program allows Affinity to take a step back
and recognize SMBs that are using the Internet in new and innovative
ways,” said Peter Chambers, CEO of Affinity Internet. “We think this is
important because the Internet is an evolving medium, and only through
innovation will we discover its potential for improving the lives of
others and changing the way business is done.”
Guidelines for entries include a 500 word essay and a survey expanding
on how the entrant has used their web site to enrich the lives of
others or improve the way business is conducted. To be eligible,
applicants must be a customer of any of AffinityÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s brands for one year
Winners will be announced the week of March 21. For more details or to nominate a company, visit www.wemakeadifference.org.
