Each year, LegitScript gives back to one or more nonprofit organizations whose services have an immeasurable impact on others or whose missions are aligned with the work we do. Our team, which has continued to grow over the past year, recently put our heads together to pick some worthy causes. The two groups we made charitable donations to in 2013 were:
- Center for Democracy & Technology: This advocacy group, which turns 20 this year, works to preserve a free and open Internet, finding solutions to public policy challenges facing the medium. LegitScript also believes in an open and free Internet that gives healthcare product users the information they need, and transparency, to make informed decisions about their health.
- Oregon Humane Society: Because LegitScript is a staff of animal lovers — plus one four-legged office mascot, Parker — we chose this animal welfare organization in our home state. LegitScript also monitors veterinary Internet pharmacies, many of which operate illegally and put our animal friends at risk.
We are proud to show our appreciation for these organizations that are doing important and valuable work. We look forward to another prosperous year in 2014!
