NEWBURY PARK, Calif., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moravia, one of the world's leading globalization companies, has renewed its commitment as a Gold Sponsor of Translators without Borders. Moravia has also donated an additional $3,300 to the organization based on proceeds from the company's social media fundraising campaign launched in December 2012.
"Language services play a vital role in humanitarian causes, because the power to effectively communicate and inform is paramount and can save lives," said Renato Beninatto, Chief Marketing Officer of Moravia and an Advisory Board Member of Translators without Borders. "In addition to renewing our pledge as a Gold Sponsor, we'd like to thank all of our clients, associates and friends for taking part in last winter's social media campaign which raised an additional $3,300 toward this organization's meaningful mission."
