CDSweep Makes it Easy to Clean Out Your Unwanted CDs and Help Support Autism Research
June 4, 2012
(New York, NY) — CDSweep (www.cdsweep.com) launches today with an easy way to do a clean sweep of all your unwanted CDs and help fund critical autism research. Just box up all of your unwanted CDs and DVDs, ship them free with prepaid FedEx labels, and for each disc received a donation will be made to the Autism Science Foundation (ASF).
Go to www.CDSweep.com, enter the amount of discs you’re sending, and you'll be emailed a prepaid FedEx label to ship them all for free. Your donation is tax-deductible and benefits the Autism Science Foundation (www.autismsciencefoundation.org), which provides funding directly to scientists conducting innovative autism research and supports the needs of people with autism and their families.
Donating your old discs to CDSweep will help advance cutting-edge scientific research into the causes and treatment of autism and provide the fast-growing number of affected individuals with the gift of hope. You can even request that your CDs be digitized to MP3s and sent back to you on DVDs for free.
"Donating your used music through CDSweep is so simple but it can directly help the millions of Americans challenged by autism," said Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation. "The increase in new autism cases is shocking and we've made significant new strides in understanding potential causes but there's never been a more important time to help further that research because we're not just talking about numbers, we're talking about real people with real needs today."
CDs and DVDs are processed by iPodmeister (www.ipodmeister.com), which ships used discs abroad to countries where they have higher resale value.
ASF is a tax-exempt public charity under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are deductible to the full extent allowed by IRS law, receipts are provided upon request.
