We are celebrating 10 years in business this summer, thanks to you, our loyal customers! Our first NetEqualizer sale was a CD version, way back on July 13th, 2003. As part of APconnections’ 10 Year Celebration, we will be donating $25 to one of four charities of the buyer’s choice for each NetEqualizer or NetGladiator sold from now until August 31, 2013.
We selected charities that are all rated B+ or above by CharityWatch. The charities are operate on a global basis (like us!) and focus on one of the following: International Relief & Development, Homelessness & Housing, or Hunger. While we may not have picked your favorite charity, we hope that you agree that these are all worthy causes!
When you place a purchase order between now and August 31st, 2013, you will be asked to pick the charity of your choice for each unit purchased.
The charities, along with descriptions of their mission/vision from their websites are as follows. You can visit their websites by clicking on their logos or the displayed link:
