Recently we made the decision to start giving donations to charities as a thank you to new clients coming on board. Basically, our plan is that for every new client that comes on board we're taking a % of their payment and giving it directly to someone in need.
Today we made our second major donation to two of our favorite charities.
1 - Doctors without Borders Canada / MSF
For more than 40 years, MSF has been providing medical assistance to
people affected by armed conflicts, natural disasters, disease
epidemics, malnutrition crises and other emergencies. All of these types
of situation call for the rapid deployment of specialized medical and
logistical expertise and equipment. MSF is world renowned for their ability to
respond quickly and for their efficient work in complicated crises.
2 - Free the Children
Founded in 1995, Free the Children works to free children from poverty
and exploitation by empowering communities with the skills and resources
needed to change their lives. The charity implements the
Adopt-a-Village development model in rural and marginalized areas in 8
countries: Kenya, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Ecuador, Haiti, Nicaragua, China,
and India. This model has 5 pillars: education, health care,
alternative income, clean water/sanitation, and agriculture/food
security. FTC builds schools and water wells, and provides medical
treatment and income sources to the developing regions. These projects
are designed to address the root cause of poverty and remove the
barriers to children's education in the developing world.
Thank you to all our new clients for making this possible.
Cheers! Have a happy and healthy day.
The whole OscarHost team.
