FrontGate Web Network Member Site Sets Goal To Raise 1 Million Pennies In 1 Million Seconds
BOISE, IDAHO - NewReleaseTuesday.com, the largest Christian music and entertainment site online and part of the FrontGate Web Network, is celebrating its first-ever month of one million pageviews by rallying its fanbase to raise one million pennies for charity in one million seconds.
NewReleaseTuesday.com—also known as NRT—saw its largest month ever in March 2014, logging a whopping 1.16 million pageviews, which was a 28 percent increase over March 2013. The site also logged a 31 percent increase in site visits over last year.
“This is a goal we’ve been looking forward to achieving for a long time,” said NRT President Kevin McNeese. “And now that we’ve attained it, it only seems right that we put the focus right back on God by caring about the things He cares about.”
Rather than just pat themselves on the back, the staff of NRT is celebrating this first-time achievement by teaming up with Show Hope—the nonprofit orphan care ministry founded by Christian music pioneer Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth—to help orphans in more than 50 countries before, during, and after their adoptions.
"Congratulations to NRT for hitting such an incredible milestone this past month,” said Show Hope Executive Director Scott Hasenbalg. “We are so grateful that you are celebrating by raising funds and awareness to help the world's waiting children. Thank you for supporting us to restore the hope of a family to orphans in distress.”
Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, April 11, NRT seeks to raise $10,000 (1 million pennies) for Show Hope in 11 days and 14 hours (1 million seconds). The fundraising promotion ends at 4:01 p.m. Eastern onTuesday, April 22.
