MADISON HEIGHTS, MI -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- At MyInchoftheEarth.com, everyone can celebrate how fathers have made a world of difference. With a $12 donation to a participating charity, donors can dedicate a virtual inch of the earth for dad this Father's Day.
"There are endless opportunities to commemorate dads, whether it is their favorite vacation spot, golf course, fishing hole, or just the family backyard," says Michele Favoretto, CEO and founder of TerraYebo.
To mark Father's Day and their My Inch of the Earth designation, dads will be presented with a GoodDeed certificate. Additionally, each virtual inch of the earth can be personalized with a story and picture or a video that explains why the place is so meaningful.
"Every inch of the Earth purchased in honor of Father's Day not only recognizes his special place in our hearts, but all money raised goes towards a charity in his honor that betters our communities and our world," says Favoretto.
MyInchofTheEarth.com is the crossroads where celebration and charity meet. For example, if someone claimed an inch of the earth of their hometown park, they could post a video of dad teaching them to ride a bike and designate their donation to Autism Speaks. Claim a virtual inch with a picture of dad on his favorite hiking trail, and the donation could go to the National Park Foundation.
"My Inch of the Earth® is an inspiring and wonderful way to honor special people in our lives and to celebrate the incredible world which we live in," says Dan Glisky, Jr., President of TerraYebo. "What a fantastic opportunity to honor our fathers while doing good for our communities."
My Inch of the Earth® is running a "Good Deeds for Good Dads" event leading up to Father's Day. When someone shares a story about the special Father in their life and buys him an inch in support of a great cause, they may be featured on My Inch of the Earth®'s Facebook and Tumblr pages!
