Following the devastating magnitude-7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, a call went out to staffers at Projects In Knowledge and affiliated company MedPage Today for donations to support the ongoing relief efforts. The response was swift and generous: a total of $1,175 was collected. A matching contribution from CEO and President Robert Stern produced a grand total of $2,350.
The donation was sent to AmeriCares, a global nonprofit health and relief organization whose established presence in Haiti has enabled it to provide immediate assistance—including medical aid, emergency supplies, and teams of relief workers—to the affected areas.
