The Meet Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MEET), a public market provider of the mobile meeting space, is partnering with Alex´s Lemonade Stand Foundation by releasing a special edition virtual gift to users on its popular MeetMe, Skout and Tagged mobile applications, the company said.
Alex´s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to helping children with the disease through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. Founded in 2005, ALSF was started by Jay and Liz Scott. After the passing of their daughter Alex, the Scotts vowed to raise money to help doctors find a cure.
September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and The Meet Group will honor it by offering a custom gift on each of MeetMe, Skout and Tagged that users can purchase to help offset travel costs for families wishing to be near their hospitalized children as part of ALSF´s Travel for Care program.
The Meet Group plans to make a donation for every Alex´s Lemonade gift sent in the apps up to an aggregate of USD 10,000 to ALSF. The limited edition gift will be available from September 7th through September 21st.
