AUSTIN (September 13, 2011) – Time Warner Cable has launched an online fundraising campaign to assist Central Texas wildfire victims entitled “Wildfire Relief: Time To Rebuild” through its web site ClickedIn.com, with proceeds benefitting the American Red Cross Central Texas Chapter. To promote the Time Warner Cable donation drive and assist the American Red Cross wildfire relief efforts, YNN Austin will host an on-air fundraising drive all day on Wednesday, September 14.
ClickedIn.com, which launched in July, is a daily deal web site operated by Time Warner Cable. For a limited time, all wildfire relief donations through ClickedIn.com will be matched by Time Warner Cable dollar for dollar. Users can register with ClickedIn.com to make a donation.
“We have witnessed first-hand the destruction brought on by wildfires around the region and our team wants to do everything we can to help those in need,” said Kathy Brabson, regional vice president of operations for Central Texas. “By matching contributions from the community, we enhance the power of giving and make a real impact in rebuilding our Central Texas community.”
YNN Austin, owned and operated by Time Warner Cable, is devoting air time all day on Wednesday, September 14 to promote the Time Warner Cable donation drive benefitting the American Red Cross. That evening, YNN will host a one hour special entitled “Wildfire Relief: Time To Rebuild”, which will highlight stories from those affected in the region including testimonials from fire victims and YNN personnel, and will also include musical performances and information about how to support the American Red Cross relief efforts.
