We all saw the devastation in Texas and the gulf coast. Now the Caribbean and Florida are facing similar hardships. Picmonic is a company devoted to helping others, and although we’re still a small startup with a small budget, we knew we had to do something.
To aid with the efforts that so many amazing organizations are contributing, Picmonic is donating $1 of all purchases through September to Americares, a trusted health-focused humanitarian organization that responds to people affected by poverty or disaster with life-changing health programs, medicine, and medical supplies. Why is just $1 so important?
$1 = $20 in Aid Delivered
For every $1 donated, Americares provides $20 in aid because they deliver donated medicine and medical supplies to a trusted network of locally-based providers.
If you’re a Premium Picmonic student who has been impacted by Harvey or Irma contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add time to your account, letting you pick things up again when you’re ready.
Thus far, Americares has deployed emergency response experts to assist in relief efforts for areas in the path of Hurricane Irma and has already delivered $1.5 million in aid to Texas, including shipments of:
- First aid supplies
- Insulin for diabetic patients
- Tetanus vaccines
- Asthma medication
- Blood pressure medication
- Bottled water
