Akimbo Cares15 Feb, 2006 By: Jessica Wolf
Video-on-demand service Akimbo has created a charitable outreach program. “Akimbo Cares.”
The service is designed to help nonprofit organizations gain exposure for their causes and gather donations through the Akimbo service network of users.
The first groups showcased on the “Akimbo Cares” channel are the ASPA, BizWorld Foundation and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The dedicated channel will feature public service announcements and videos Akimbo subscribers can view and then easily be able to donate to an organization via their remote control with Akimbo's “click-to-donate” technology.
“This is a revolutionary way for nonprofit organizations to use cutting-edge technology to share their vision and reach out to new audiences through an engaging visual connection,” said Joshua Goldman, CEO of Akimbo.
