Company Adds another Nonprofit to List of Supported Philanthropies
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 30, 2008 -- www.CollaborateMD.com [CollaborateMD]], a leading provider of on-demand practice management and medical billing software, has added http://www.habitat.org/ [Habitat for Humanity International], which builds and rehabilitates small houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families, to its list of ongoing charitable contributions. According to their website, Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.
"We know the recent economy has greatly affected families across the country, and we are more than happy to be a reliable source of funding to help vital organizations like Habitat for Humanity plan ahead," commented Douglas Kegler, CollaborateMD president and CEO.
The first nonprofit to be supported by CollaborateMD was the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), which seeks to alleviate human suffering in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the United States. Soon to follow were St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, devoted to research and the treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases, and Covenant House, which provides shelter and other services to homeless, runaway and throwaway youth.
More recently, the Company began contributing to American Forests, the nation's oldest nonprofit citizens' conservation organization. As of March 2008, CollaborateMD had donated funds to purchase 3,000 trees; one for each active user on its system. They further pledged to purchase another 500 trees to help offset their estimated yearly carbon dioxide output, and to repeat the "Plant a Tree by Going ASP" program annually.
