Go Daddy Generosity Benefiting Charities
“This will be Go Daddy’s third year as Title Sponsor for the JDRF Walk and we couldn’t be more pleased,” said Becky Jackson, Executive Director/CEO of the Desert Southwest Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International. “Each of the last two years, we’ve had more than 25,000 participants and raised more than $2MM with Go Daddy’s help. Last year alone, CEO Bob Parsons and Go Daddy donated $138,000 and had more than 750 walkers in the event.”
Go Daddy may be best known for its edgy commercials, but there is so much more to the Web industry leader. Go Daddy works tirelessly on Capitol Hill to make the Internet a safe and secure place. Just last week, The Go Daddy Group was invited to testify before a Congressional subcommittee regarding the future of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). In 2008, the company was instrumental in passing two federal laws – one protecting children from online sexual predators, and a second providing Web companies with much-needed tools to take illegitimate Internet pharmacies offline. Substantial contributions like these, along with a variety of charitable work, provide Go Daddy important opportunities to give back.
“It’s not important that we get credit for all the money we donate,” said Parsons. “What’s important is that we make a difference. The year is far from over, in terms of Go Daddy’s charity work.”
