National Nonprofit Day was created in order to recognize the impact these organizations have on our local communities and around the world. We all have the ability to promote positive change. There are a lot of organizations that many people feel a personal connection to. Each quarter our organization gives our employees 8 hours to volunteer to any organization they wish. Philanthropy is one of our core values at Zempleo and we feel it is very important to create a lasting impact on our community and worldwide.
In honor of National Nonprofit Day, we would like to highlight an organization that we are partnering with this year and some of our employees have volunteered for many years.
We sat down with CEO of MitoAction, Kira Mann, as she explains to us about MitoAction and upcoming events that are happening this year and how you can help support.
For over 15 years, MitoAction has been transforming the lives of families affected by mitochondrial disease. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children, adults and families living with mitochondrial disease through support, education, outreach, advocacy and clinical research initiatives.
Committed to making the largest impact possible, MitoAction serves individuals in the U.S. and around the world through support, education, outreach, advocacy, and clinical research initiatives. The programs and services MitoAction provides continue to be a lifeline for families impacted by mitochondrial disease. Families know with MitoAction, they will never be alone on this difficult journey.
