The 25th Annual Orange County Register's Prestigious Holiday Spirit Award Picks its Winner

Monster Offers™ CEO, Wayne Irving II has earned a spot as a finalist for OC Register's Holiday Spirit Award

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif., Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Monster  Offers™ (OTCBB: MONT), a leading Daily Deal analytics provider and aggregator and marketing consultant to the mobile advertising industry, today congratulates its CEO, Wayne Irving II, who placed among the top twenty finalists for the 25th Annual OC Register's Holiday Spirit Award.  More than 80 business owners and leaders in Orange County were initially being considered for this highly sought after and prestigious award for 2012.

In addition to serving as CEO, Chairman and a board member for Monster Offers, Mr. Irving is also CEO and co-founder of Laguna Niguel-based, Iconosys, Inc., a leading mobile communications app developer, and is also founder of the non-profit organization, Text Kills®.

Wayne has had a colorful, successful and highly visible career as an entrepreneur, serving as CEO of SpinRecords.com from 1998-2000 (which serviced clients such as Maytag, Dig Music, Apple, and others), and as CEO of Save America Money.com  from 2001-2003.  No stranger to accolades, Mr. Irving was nominated for the 2000 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year honor, made the Entrepreneur Magazine 2000 E-List, and was recently chosen as a recipient of the 2011 OC Metro Hot 25 Business Leaders award.

"Not only does he treat his employees and the surrounding community with the utmost kindness and respect, on a very consistent basis he goes out of his way to ensure that his companies maintain the highest standards of performance in their interactions and business dealings with customers, service providers, vendors and strategic partners," commented Blake Stoudt, Executive Producer of the highly publicized and much ballyhooed Text Kills® outreach program.

Known as a business innovator with a golden tongued voice for companies seeking traction in the fast growing tech space and app development arena, Mr. Irving is also a staunch advocate for  teen driver safety and for the well being of children and toddlers through his development of such important and widely used safety apps for Smartphones and other Smart Devices as DriveReply®, Trick or Tracker®, and WordBully™. 

Wayne, also a member of the NOYS (National Organization of Youth Safety), works closely with various charities, particularly those closely associated or collaborating with schools and law enforcement agencies, and also devotes a significant amount of his time and energy to advancing the causes of other non-profits, safety oriented corporations, and community organizations all over Orange County and, for that matter, across the entire United States.  In particular, while at the helm of Iconosys, he has developed some truly unique and useful Smartphone applications for various charities, so as to help these organizations achieve their fundraising and donation objectives, including engagements with OC Walk for AIDS, OC Ride for AIDS, Long Beach AIDS Walk, Long Beach Marathon, TACA (Talk about Curing Autism), various Children's Museums, and children's cancer cure causes, just to name a few. 

Some of the fruits of Mr. Irving's aggressive efforts and outreach through Text Kills® can be seen in the traction achieved in terms of spreading community awareness about the very real dangers posed by distracted driving and cyber-bullying; this includes gathering over 70,000 pledges on the 36-foot wrapped Text Kills® Bus!  By addressing head on these two increasingly harmful communications practices, which pose growing, and very real threats to our collective well-being, Wayne is indeed helping to promote a safer and more respectful society for all.  To track or follow the success of Text Kills®, visit www.TextKills.com or view the popular YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/textkills.

"As surprised as I was to be nominated, I am deeply humbled and gratified to be among the finalists for this honor, at a time when we mourn for the recent, tragic loss of life for school children in Newtown, Connecticut, when there are still about 700,000 new occurrences of  missing children each year, and when child safety remains a huge concern … one that is literally on the tip of everyone's tongue," commented Wayne Irving II.  He continued, "I want to sincerely thank everyone that I work with for this symbolic pat on the back, and this only encourages me to continue my mission for making child safety a national priority in the US, as well as abroad. In addition, I would like to take this opportunity to give a well-deserved message of congratulations to the Holiday Spirit Award winner, Susan Scott, owner of Premiere Home Health Care."
