Employees contributed their time and talent for a community cause that matters.
inMotionNow (www.inmotionnow.com), a leading provider of work management solutions for marketing and creative departments, has secured $6,407 in charitable donations to benefit Duke Children’s and its patients, many of whom were raised in the local community.
Duke Children’s treats over 60,000 unique patients each year, and over 90% of those patients are from North Carolina. The hospital is firmly grounded in four missions: clinical care, laboratory research, medical education, and children’s health advocacy. It acts on each of these missions with the help of the generous individuals and organizations that support it each year. Thanks to their contributions and the amazing men and women who devote their time and energy to the hospital full time, Duke Children’s has been able to accomplish major medical breakthroughs and deliver remarkable care to patients. The hospital was the world’s first to use insulin pumps for infants and toddlers, now considered a standard of care. It’s also one of the largest pediatric bone marrow transplant programs in the world, and a leader in the treatment of children born to HIV-infected mothers.
As part of Duke Children’s May 2016 outreach, inMotionNow employees volunteered their time to help the hospital drum up support in the form of pledged funds. The two-day event consisted of a tour of the hospital and a day of volunteerism, during which inMotionNow employees made phone calls to previous Duke Children’s donors whose gifts were ready to be renewed; wrote “get well soon” cards to patients at the hospital, and promoted the fundraising link through their personal social channels. inMotionNow also agreed to match 10% of all donations.
“Partnering with such a worthy organization as Duke Children’s was truly inspiring for me and my team,” says inMotionNow CEO Ben Hartmere. “We were continuously impressed by the generosity of the many kind-hearted people who live in this community. Their support and the amazing team at the hospital make the good work Duke Children’s does every day possible.”
inMotionNow first connected with Duke Children’s through one of their clients, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals), who uses inMotion to proof web design and digital assets. CMN Hospitals is a network of 170 hospitals across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. The network’s mission is to raise awareness and funds for local member children’s hospitals. All money raised through CMN Hospitals stays local, benefiting the hospital in the community it was raised.
