AOL Impact: Weekly Round Up of "Cause of the Day"

Jul 10, 2012 9:00 AM ET

AOL Impact is our corporate commitment to raising awareness for non-profit organizations that our consumers, employees, and partners care about. We do this by dedicating a space on that features a new cause everyday and engages our audience to take action via our AOL Impact site,

Throughout the year AOL Impact welcomes our followers to submit causes that they care about for a chance to be spotlighted on to our audience of millions.  This month we are dedicating two weeks to solely feature amazing cause submissions.  On Friday, July 6th we showcased the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance as the 'Cause of the Day' on, and the placement drove over 15,000 click-throughs (average is 9,000)!  This means over 15-thousand potential activists clicked on the placement to learn more about the cause and find ways to get involved. AOL Impact is thrilled to feature amazing organizations like this that are submitted by our followers and clearly resonate with our larger audience.  

Be sure to check to see what cause we are featuring today!
