AffiliateMarketersGiveBack.com (“AMGB”) was founded in 2007 by Missy Ward, co-founder of Affiliate Summit, FeedFront Magazine and GeekCast.fm. Its goal is two-fold; to raise money to support Breast Cancer research, treatment, awareness and community programs through combined efforts within the Affiliate Marketing Industry and also provide an outlet for people to help themselves by uplifting others in a ways that another piña colada-filled vacation, more “stuff” or a beefier resume couldn’t possibly begin to do.
In 2007, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back was formed, (consisting only of Connie Berg of FlamingoWorld.com and Missy Ward) who raised $17,000 in a few short weeks by walking 60-miles in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-day walk in Minnesota.
Nine years later, 91 affiliate marketers have walked 3,820+ miles in 13 cities and have helped to raise over $600,000.00 for organizations that fund breast cancer research, treatment, awareness and community programs.
