30 July 2012: The Pixel Project, the award-nominated global volunteer-led virtual non-profit social enterprise working to end Violence Against Women (VAW) worldwide, is proud to announce that their domain name will be sponsored by well-known Denver-based domain name registrar, Name.com, for the next decade, ending in May 2022.

Over the past three-and-a-half years since its founding, The Pixel Project has grown from strength to strength as a completely virtual nonprofit working to stop violence against women. The Pixel Project domain name (www.thepixelproject.net) has not only become synonymous with being one of the most trusted sources of information, help sheets and inspiring stories for VAW survivors, anti-VAW activists and first-time supporters of the cause, but also as a shorthand for some of the most creative and striking online anti-VAW campaigns mounted in recent years.

Ashley Forker, Marketing Coordinator at Name.com said: “Name.com is thrilled to sponsor The Pixel Project and support them in their effort to prevent violence against women. Since we’re Internet geeks we love that it’s a completely virtual group of volunteers working together beyond borders to increase awareness and activism to keep our women safe!”

Regina Yau, Founder and President of The Pixel Project, said: “With The Pixel Project’s work being primarily online and our entire team being virtual volunteers scattered across 4 different continents, our domain name is an important aspect of both our identity and our work. Having our domain name sponsored by Name.com for the next decade not only provides peace of mind to our team and the women we support that we will always be there, but it also emphasises that we are here to stay for the long-haul in the fight to end violence against women. We look forward working with Name.com and are confident that their timely sponsorship will strengthen our mission to raise awareness, funds and volunteer power for the cause to end violence against women across the world.”
