Mount Laurel, NJ, June 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communication held their 2nd Annual Fundraising Event to prevent Cyber Crime and Bullying on June 16, 2012 at the Happy Hour Club in Maple Shade, NJ.
The evening saluted the multi-award winning nonprofit’s growth and success, providing over 600 workshops to students, teachers, professionals, law enforcement, and communities across the United States, Canada and Australia since its creation just 3 years ago.
The funding raised at the event goes toward ensuring no school or community is denied the Institute’s live saving and vital information about cyber safety and responsibility despite rising travel costs and tighter budgets. The Institute refuses to turn down organizations with limited funding, and quite frequently uses its own funds to ensure nobody is refused information.
Richard Guerry, Executive Director and Founder of IROC2.org delivered an important message: “There are millions of people in our now global community that have been handed extremely powerful (digital) tools, but no guidelines on how to use them responsibly leading to many challenges for too many people.” Mr. Guerry went on to emphasize that “digital tools and technologies are a gift that offer everyone a chance to be beautiful to a billion people instantly – if used correctly. But like any other tool, if they are abused, the consequences can be devastating. This is what we are trying to help everyone avoid - through the dissemination of vital information.”
