Rainn Wilson ('Dwight' on The Office) Joins Reply.com at Fundraiser for Mona Foundation
Date:8/24/2009

SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy-nominated actor Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute on NBC's hit show The Office, headlined a fundraising gathering of more than 120 attendees Saturday night, August 15, at the home of Gouya and Payam Zamani, Founder & CEO of Reply.com. The event garnered contributions for the Mona Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports social and economic development projects focused on the education of underprivileged children. Reply.com committed $80,000 - part of an overall donation of more than $100,000 raised at the event - to the Mona Foundation to aid the education of hundreds of children at two schools in towns ravaged by Hurricane Ike in Haiti over two years ago.

Rainn Wilson, himself an active advocate of the Mona Foundation, spoke to the crowd and encouraged them to support these projects. The foundation supports educational initiatives that raise the status of women and girls in the U.S. and abroad.

"We can all, as individuals and corporations, sacrifice a little more for the betterment of the world. A line item in our annual budgets that may represent an insignificant percentage of our profits can offer a chance for a better life to hundreds, if not thousands, of children," said Payam Zamani. "Let our hearts and deeds be directed toward the welfare of humanity."

The event and financial support extends Reply.com's commitment to donating a consistent portion of its earnings to the cause on an ongoing basis. As part of an effort to further the Mona Foundation's global initiatives, Payam and Gouya Zamani have already visited Ruaha Secondary School in Tanzania and will be visiting Zunuzi and New Horizon schools in Haiti this fall.

"We are thrilled that Reply.com has been able to mobilize support for the foundation and children in Haiti," said Mahnaz Javid, one of the founders and the President of Mona Foundation. "These contributions will go a long way towards providing the necessary support that will allow these two schools to grow and expand their roles in the communities they serve."

The Mona Foundation (www.monafoundation.org) is named after Mona Mahmoudnezhad, a 16-year-old Iranian girl who was hanged in 1983 for practicing the Baha'i faith (www.bahai.org). Before her execution, Mona was known for her work with orphans and commitment to the education of children. Today, the secular foundation she inspired supports over 40 educational initiatives around the world.
