Tim Armstrong Tops Adweek "The Givers" List

At AOL, we're in the business of helping people, period. We live by this value every day, and we're proud that our CEO, Tim Armstrong, has been recognized for leading our company's commitment to making a difference in the world. Today, Adweek posted their portfolio of people doing good entitled "The Givers" which highlights individuals who have committed their "companies' capital and human resources, gave their own time and money, and lent their influential voices to causes as diverse as climate change, access to clean drinking water, the arts and the support of military families, these powerful people are making a colossal difference." Joining Tim on this list are other "Givers" including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg; global CEO of Havas, David Jones and A+E Networks president and CEO, Abbe Raven.

From Adweek's profile of Tim:

"Even as he leads the biggest reboot in the history of digital media, the CEO of AOL has kept serving others top of mind, orchestrating huge efforts to inspire giving on the part of employees, partners and consumers. Since instituting the annual Monster Help Day two years ago, employees in 22 offices worldwide have volunteered 60,000 hours to more than 60 charities. Other initiatives include Citizen Schools, in which more than 100 AOL employees serve as teachers. Armstrong formed Action America upon the 10th anniversary of 9/11 to inspire community involvement and giving. And the redesign of the AOL homepage mandated that a permanent space be dedicated to a different nonprofit daily, driving over 19 billion impressions to 380 groups."
