Travel Advantage Network Enjoys Silencing Co-Workers, Raising More Than $1,600 for Autism
Date:2/19/2009

MILLERSVILLE, Md., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It was a quiet day at the office, and quite ordinary if you didn't notice the playful daggers employees shot at each other throughout the day. Travel Advantage Network employees paid $1 toward the charity Autism Speaks in order to silence one co-worker for the day. Any silenced employees could buy back their voices for $2 each for the charity. The unusually quiet day raised more than $100 toward the month's total of $1,681 for Autism Speaks.

"We were really nervous," says co-organizer Andrea Bivins, whose 19-year-old sister was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a milder form of the disorder. Bivins and co-organizer Mellissa VanSkiver weren't sure employees would buy into the silent opportunity, but it turned into a popular fund-raiser.

"I believe the silence increased productivity, so we may just have to schedule a few more silent day fund-raisers," TAN President Brad Callahan jokes.

A silent auction also proved popular and raised more than $700. Most of the month's fund-raising events called attention to the cause. "Sometimes people with autism have problems communicating," says Bivins.

Autism Speaks committed an unprecedented $30 million in new research funding to uncover any causes, prevention, treatments and cures for autism, making it the nation's top private funder of autism research.

In 2008, TAN employees donated more than $10,000 to charities like the Muscular Dystrophy Association, National Alopecia Areata Foundation and The MISS Foundation. For more information about Travel Advantage Network, call 410-729-1133, or visit its website: planwithtan.com.
