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.

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 fou
