					Company Name, Inc. was formed in response to a demand by non-profit
clients for a more effective, personal and results-driven marketing approach. The concept that Company Name utilizes is called Event Based Direct Advertising and is capable of reaching 99% of the general public within a given market area. It is personal, powerful and provides an image custom-made of our clients. In the past, traditional advertising methods like billboards, flyers, TV and radio stations have become fractionalized due to the large number of similar promotions that make reaching a substantial market difficult and expensive. Furthermore, among business people, homeowners, and young people alike, there exists no medium that can be more exciting, authoritative and commanding than that of a personalized message delivered on a one-on-one basis. More importantly, pure and simple, it works. Using our direct advertising methods, we have consistently achieved dramatic results for clients, both large and small. Our portfolio currently includes non-profit organizations such as Child Protection Education of America (CPEA), Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE), US Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots Program, and United Care USA. Our most recent highlights include reaching the 1 million dollar mark in monies raised for Child Protection Education of America, as well as, collecting over 300,000 toys, throughout this past holiday season, for the Toys for Tots foundation. Our program, which started in 2001 with only a handful of people, has now extended to over 700 people in 30 cities in the U.S. as well as, most recently, overseas in beautiful Puerto Rico. Company Name is a perfect combination of great ideas, superb client service and successful business professionals. We believe that, good business depends upon people of varying backgrounds, resources and skills.

National D.A.R.E. Day Proclamation

THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary

National D.A.R.E. Day 2006
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America: On National D.A.R.E. Day, we honor the dedicated police officers and all those involved in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program and underscore our commitment to helping young people say no to drugs and violence. By promoting positive youth development, D.A.R.E. programs across our country are helping our children make the right choices and build lives of purpose. Since 1983, D.A.R.E. has taught young people how to recognize and resist the pressure to be involved in drugs, gangs, and violent activities. The D.A.R.E. program brings police officers into the classroom to answer tough questions about drugs and crime, teaches students how to avoid temptation, and encourages communication between young people and law enforcement. This program strengthens our communities and provides our children with a strong foundation for success. My Administration remains committed to helping our young people overcome the dangers of violence and the use of illegal substances. The Helping America's Youth initiative, led by First Lady Laura Bush, encourages local partnerships that empower families, schools, and communities to help young people reach their full potential. We are also strengthening youth drug prevention efforts on the State and local levels with the Strategic Prevention Framework and the Drug Free Communities program. These initiatives tailor prevention strategies to local needs and give community organizations the power to identify challenges and take actions to overcome them. In 2005, the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign and the Partnership for a Drug-Free America launched Above the Influence, an advertising and online campaign to encourage teens to reject drug use and other negative pressures. My Administration has also hosted a series of summits to educate community leaders and school officials on successful student drug testing. The struggle against alcohol abuse, drugs, and violence is a national, state, and local effort. Parents, teachers, volunteers, D.A.R.E. officers, and all those who help our young people grow into responsible, successful adults are strengthening our country and contributing to a future of hope for everyone. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 11, 2006, as National D.A.R.E. Day. I call upon young people and all Americans to fight drug use and violence in our communities. I also urge our citizens to support the law enforcement officials, volunteers, teachers, health care professionals, and all those who work to help our children avoid drug use and violence. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.

Where Science Meets the Street News Release - February 2006

As kids nationwide continue to use illicit drugs and binge on alcohol, there is good news: Thousands of police officers are being trained to deliver Take Charge of Your Life, the new science-based D.A.R.E prevention program. As one Cleveland officer put it, “It's where science meets the street.” D.A.R.E.'s new programming for 7th and 9th grade students is based on the latest drug abuse prevention and education research. Now in its final year of evaluation by the University of Akron with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the longitudinal study of the new D.A.R.E. curricula is the nation's largest and most comprehensive prevention research effort to date, far outranking any other previous study in both scope and sophistication. With nearly 20,000 students being monitored in six cities for five years, the study is producing rich data sets and one of the most promising theoretical models of prevention. “We are very encouraged at the positive impact that the prevention model underlying the Take Charge of Your Life curricula is continuing to show on the attitudes, intentions, and beliefs of the students receiving the program,” says Dr. Zili Sloboda, the principal investigator of the multimillion dollar study. “The enthusiasm of the officers delivering the new Take Charge of Your Life curricula is overwhelming,” says Dr. Joseph Williams of the University of Akron , who spent six months extensively interviewing the officers. “DARE officers used to lecture to kids in the past, but with this new program, they are coaching kids in real life situations. They're showing kids MRI images of brains on drugs; they're true prevention professionals armed with first-rate prevention research and it gives them confidence.” According to Dr. Sloboda, the joining of the science-based Take Charge of Your Life curricula with the D.A.R.E. network is ideal. “The D.A.R.E. network has the ability to diffuse through national training new and effective prevention programs and to monitor the quality of delivery,” says Sloboda, “Simply put, there is no comparable national prevention delivery network like D.A.R.E. in the US. The existence of D.A.R.E. is an opportunity to bring the latest in prevention to millions of children and adolescents in both a timely and a quality fashion.”

The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundations is to assist the U.S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. This assistance includes supporting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program by raising funds to provide toys to supplement the collection goal local Toys for Tots campaigns; to defray the costs of conducting annual Toys for Tots campaigns; to provide other support the Marine Corps, as a federal agency, cannot provide and to conduct public education and information programs about Toys for Tots that call the general public to action in support of this patriotic community action program.

In 1947, a group of U.S. Marine Reservists collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children of Los Angeles on Christmas eve. This pilot campaign was so successful that the U.S. Marine Corps titled it the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, and expanded it nationwide the following year. Walt Disney designed the Toys for Tots poster for the 1948 campaign. Mr. Disney's poster included a three car train with the words "Toys for Tots" inscribed thereon. This design continues today as the official logo of Toys for Tots. The original mission of "bringing the joy of Christmas and delivering a message of hope to needy children" continues today. The signature symbols of Toys for Tots are: a Raggedy Ann Doll (first Toys for Tots toy) a Marine attired in a Dress Blue uniform (received the first toy and delivered it to a needy child), and the threecar train logo (designed by Walt Disney.) Annual Toys for Tots campaigns are conducted each year throughout the nation from October 1st through December 24th. From the 1948 coverage of campaigns in 74 communities in 25 states and the District of Columbia, the program coverage expanded over fourfold by 2003 to campaigns in 456 communities covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. From 1947 - 2003, U.S. Marines distributed 313 million toys to 151 million needy children. Today, Toys for Tots is the Marine Corps' premier community action program, one of the nation's flagship Christmas charitable causes and the only charitable endeavor within the Department of Defense that reaches outside the military to give something back to the communities from which the nation draws the young men and women who serve in the armed forces of the United States.

Warner Bros. Initiates Partnership with Innovage to Bring Innovation In Customer Experience and Distribution
Following Three-Year Agreement with Innovage, Over Three Million New Warner Brothers Products Now Available to U.S. Businesses, Consumers
Based on a three-year partnership agreement between Warner Brothers Consumer Products and national product developer and direct-seller Innovage, businesses and consumers throughout the U.S. now have access to more than eight new product lines with expected distribution of over 3 million units. The newly launched products available for the first time this month stemmed from a partnership deal penned in 2005 to increase product volume and distribution channels across the U.S. for licensing powerhouse Warner Brothers. As the nation's leading creator, manufacturer and supplier of popular consumer brand products in terms of sheer volume and quality, Innovage will enable the brand to reach millions of consumers face-to-face through personal product demonstrations. Creating an alternative channel for product distribution that is unrivaled in volume, Innovage brings new products and distribution advantages to consumers via its vast network of face-to-face distribution offices throughout the world. Through its newly formed partnership with Warner Brothers, Innovage will produce and supply more than three million new Warner Brother products in 2006 alone. Through its ground-breaking, one of a kind, distribution model, Innovage has pioneered a new form of production and brand exposure that provides Warner Bros. with greater visibility and increased sales. Innovage creates and manufactures exclusively branded products on behalf of companies such as Warner Bros, Marvel and Vivitar to be distributed via highvolume direct selling that targets consumers face-to-face in their businesses, an approach that is attracting more and more international consumer brands. "We pride ourselves not only on the unmatched volume of products we're able to supply, but also on the quality and overall pricing we're able to offer our customers to truly give them the advantage," said Larry Tenebaum, Chief Executive Officer of Innovage. "By providing brand name products for our customers to sell directly to consumers in their businesses, we've created an untapped distribution model that gets better results than high-priced, less personalized alternatives." "Our specially designed product lines have helped companies break into previously untapped markets and increase their otherwise uniform sales figures. In the last year alone, we created over $53 million in additional sales in just specialty books alone." Several of the latest consumer merchandise pieces now available through Innovage's partnership with Warner Brothers include new Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo and Tom and Jerry products. This includes 1.6 million Scooby Doo puzzles, activity books and action packs; 1.2 million Looney Tunes wipe-off individual books and book sets; and 300,000 Tom and Jerry puzzle books and carrying cases, just to name a few. "Warner Bros. has a wide variety of products available to consumers, but Innovage has created an entirely new market with their unique distribution service," said Jennifer Clapp, correspondent with Licensor. "They not only reach consumers in a personal way with a level of convenience that can never be matched by the retail environment, but they've designed a line of exclusive products specially tailored for sales through that channel." With more than 150 offices and 1500 distributor customers nationwide, Innovage provides brand exposure and consumer outreach models that traditional distribution efforts for businesses like Warner Bros typically lack. While many purchasing models are getting more impersonal, with computerized customer service systems and automated internet sales, Innovage's distributors bring these high quality products to customers via personalized service where people work, face-to-face.
