MyInchofTheEarth.com helping connect people to meaningful places and preserve memories while supporting National Park Foundation
MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – April 24, 2013 – In recognition of National Park Week (April 20-28), MyInchofTheEarth.com and the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks, are inviting earth conscious individuals and enthusiasts to claim their virtual piece of America’s National Parks through the newly redesigned MyInchofTheEarth.com web site. Each inch is claimed with a minimum donation of $12 that can support NPF. One of several nonprofit organizations that benefits from the fundraising support of MyInchofTheEarth.com, NPF, raises private funds that directly aid, support and enrich the country’s more than 400 national parks and their programs.
“The National Park Foundation is committed to preserving battlefields, historic sites and natural areas across America, and we are proud to help support their efforts in a new and engaging way,” said Michele Favoretto, CEO and founder of TerraYebo. “Practically everyone has visited a national park or monument, and we all have unique stories and pictures that make the visit and the place important to us. In recognition of National Park Week, everyone is invited to MyInchofTheEarth.com to share those experiences and support the National Park Foundation.”
At MyInchofTheEarth.com, small actions can make a big difference. These small actions begin by claiming a virtual inch of the earth and personalizing the inch with a story, picture and or a video that explains why the place is so meaningful; and then sharing the inch and memories with others across dozens of social media channels. Every time an inch is claimed and shared, other people are encouraged and inspired to make a difference and support good causes. Each inch is claimed with a minimum donation of $12 to the user’s preferred charity or cause. People’s experiences are as unique as the lat/long coordinates of the places they choose, and each claimed inch is rewarded with a GoodDEED Certificate that authenticates the inch and commemorates the donation.
Dan Glisky, Jr., TerraYebo president, added, “MyInchofTheEarth.com provides a fun, engaging and meaningful way to preserve the planet for generations and inspire others to pay it forward. When someone buys an inch in support of NPF, they are doing their part to ensure that we can forever enjoy our country’s national and natural treasures.”
