Help Ultradent Provide Relief to Those Affected by the Earthquake in Japan





I've been an Ultradent customer for a lot of years and I am truly a huge fan of their corporate culture and their dedication to making the world a better place.

I received the following email yesterday. I think this is a great idea and I encourage all of you to participate!

Here is the email:

In response to the evolving humanitarian crisis that resulted from the recent 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Northern Japan, Ultradent announced plans for two initiatives to support relief efforts in Japan. Both initiatives will support AmeriCares, a non-profit disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization that provides immediate emergency response and supports long-term humanitarian assistance programs around the world.

"Disasters of this magnitude require support on a global scale," said Dr. Dan Fischer, President/CEO of Ultradent. "While we're reassured that our colleagues in Japan are safe, we're saddened by the state of destruction in the region and hope to do our part in helping relief and long term recovery efforts".

Ultradent's relief initiatives include a voluntary program for Ultradent employees to donate funds which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the company. Details of the program have been shared with more than 1000 employees throughout Ultradent's international network. Ultradent has also delivered hygiene aids (toothbrushes, OpalPix, etc.) for immediate support.
The second initiative extends to friends and patrons of Ultradent. Online customers can add a donation directly to their cart along with their order. Facebook friends can donate to Ultradent's fund for AmeriCares through the "Causes" app linked on our company page. 100% of proceeds go to AmeriCares.
