NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Beezid.com, a top-rated penny auction website that offers a thrilling twist to online auction shopping, announced today that the site's iTribute Apple Products Event launched last Friday, October 7 in memory of Steve Jobs has $5,000 for cancer research. The event ran for 6 hours and showcased Apple products only, where members enjoyed savings of 99% off their MSRPs, due to a 1% price freeze.
While Steve Jobs left his mark behind with iPhones, iPads and MacBooks, he also left a reminder that approximately 7.6 million people around the world die from cancer each year. Based on revenue generated from Bid Pack sales during this period, the company has raised $5,000 for the worthwhile cause.
This donation continues to build on the philanthropic goal set by Beezid to create a better world. In the past two years Beezid has lent a helping hand by donating over $20,000 for children's programs including funding specifically for talented children whose families lack the resources to register them in organized sports; $15,000 for Autism Speaks, the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization; and $7,000 to local schools. Beezid has also donated thousands to the Red Cross, specifically for families affected by natural disasters such as the earthquake in Haiti. Beezid is also responsible for various match donations to corporate relationships with companies who focus on community support, environmental issues, animal shelters, etc. by providing free work such as design, IT, promotions, etc. to a tune of $50,000 dollars. This adds up to a total donation commitment of over $100,000 in their first two years of business.
"I am honored to be donating to cancer research after the iTribute event for Steve Jobs," said Beezid CEO, Max Bohbot. "What Mr. Jobs was able to accomplish in his life and his time at Apple is remarkable, he reshaped a culture and guided the world into a new generation of technology. He defined a visionary and his accomplishments will never be forgotten."
