Press Release Summary = Online coupons help shoppers save money while generating
donations to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Press Release Body = A new website, was launched on October 2,
2006 with the mission of raising money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
while increasing public awareness of the debilitating disease. \"The website supports
this mission by providing online shoppers the ability to generate donations to the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society through their every day online purchases without
costing them a penny,\" explains Founder Robert Watson. \"In fact, shoppers save money
at many of their favorite online stores such as, Best, Toys R, and by using the links on the site. The site donates to the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society a percentage of each shopper\'s purchase made
after clicking on the links and coupons provided. The website also accepts direct
tax-deductible donations to help defray costs of maintaining the site.

According to Mr. Watson, the concept for the site was developed after his mother
passed away in June, 2005 from complications arising from her long time battle with
Multiple Sclerosis. \"The National MS Society is the forerunner in funding research
into the cause and cure of MS. I hope that through this website people will realize
that they can help individuals and families who suffer from MS simply by clicking on
these links when they make purchases at online merchants.\"

The website was launched in time for the holiday shopping season. Several categories
of merchandise can be found through the merchants listed on
including electronics, computers, toys, books, clothing, and holiday specials. \"We
are adding more merchants every day and we ask users to let us know if they don\'t
see what they are looking for. We can add just about any retailer that sells
products on the internet\" says Mr. Watson.
