One of the most rewarding things we experience here at OhmConnect is seeing our community harness the power of good to go beyond simply helping the planet. Creating or joining a team within the OhmConnect community is a way to pool earnings with your team members to donate to an organization of your choice, while engaging more people to save energy.
The OC March of Dimes is a team we’re extremely proud to have as part of the OhmConnect community, and we’re pleased to have just had the opportunity to present them with their latest team donation check, bringing the total to $2,400. The donation goes straight to the March of Dimes in order to help further their mission of improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Saving energy to avoid the unnecessary use of extra power plants is more than just concern for the planet; nearly 16,000 preterm births in the U.S. in 2010 were linked to air pollution, according a study in Environmental Health Perspectives. The OC March of Dimes has continued their commitment and dedication to healthier children, and a healthy planet on which they can thrive, with their collective energy savings, and we couldn’t be happier to have been able to present them with another donation check.
Looking onward to our next donation – let’s shoot for $10,000!
