New York, NY, June 04, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Memory-Of.com, the world’s premiere Online Center for Healing, announced today that for every MemoryBook purchased on their site during the month of June, $5 will be donated to the National Fatherhood Initiative in celebration of Father’s Day.
“Our fathers play a very important role in our lives, so when people experience the loss of a father, a grandfather, or close father-figure it can be a challenging time. This Father’s Day we wanted to do something special and take the healing offline and into the homes of our members and the future fathers of America by partnering with The National Fatherhood Initiative,” said Ben Gruber, President of Memory-Of.com.
Memory-Of.com’s MemoryBooks use the latest online and publishing technology to allow people to convert their Memorial Websites into beautiful hardbound books. And because of the partnership between Memory-Of.com and MemoryPress.com, MemoryBooks can be easily edited, customized and previewed throughout their simple creation process.
“We wanted to take the success we’ve had with MemoryBooks and give back to an admirable and praiseworthy partner that supports fathers and fatherhood. We feel there is no better way to honor the fathers we’ve lost than to serve an organization that promotes the importance of men taking an active role in parenting,” explained Mr. Gruber.
National Fatherhood Initiative’s mission is to improve the well being of children by increasing the proportion of children growing up with involved, responsible, and committed fathers.
Ronald C. Warren, president of National Fatherhood Initiative said, “One of the most powerful things a father can do is to leave a positive legacy for his children. Memory-of.com provides families with a wonderful way to celebrate those fatherhood legacies, and NFI is proud to partner with them this Father’s Day.”
