Edie Hand Foundation and AskPatty.com Announce Partnership

The Edie Hand Foundation, creators of the adolescent-focused You Pave the Way program, today announced it signed a partnership agreement with AskPatty.com Inc. and our network of Certified Female Friendlyr automotive retail locations across North America.

The primary focus of the Edie Hand Foundation is a youth-oriented program called You Pave the Way. Community leaders and parents have recognized that adolescence is a time of change and growing pains, making it especially challenging for a child's self-esteem. As a sponsor of this program, AskPatty.com has engaged a powerful marketing program that emphasises their commitment to improving the lives of women and children, and the opportunity also extends to the Ask Patty community of Certified Female Friendlyr retailers.

"We're a company about effective communication and education, and we try to pass that practice along to every client who goes through our Certified Female Friendlyr training" says Jody DeVere, president and CEO of AskPatty.com. "This opportunity is a cause that's important to me personally. The book 31 Ways to Raise a Child's Self Esteem, along with Edie's leadership expertise and hands-on approach, will really help our clients to engage in a community-focused cause that has a national exposure while improving the lives of children in their own local schools."
