I had the privilege to announce to a crowd of Market Technologies employees and Shriners Hospital representatives that a portion of all sales the trading software company makes during the third quarter of 2017 will be donated to the children’s hospital through an event to be held later this year.
True giving is when you give without any expectation of anything in return. We wanted to do something that would allow everyone in this room to experience the joy of giving.
Since 2007, my family and Market Technologies have donated more than $592,000 to local and national non-profit organizations thanks largely to the success it provides to nearly 25,000 customers.
“With what you all are going to do, it’s going to make a huge impact in so many lives,” said Leigh Dittman, a senior at Gaither High School who was invited to attend the event. Dittman was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, commonly known as brittle bone disease, and has been a patient at Shriners’ Tampa location for most of her life.
Shriners Hospital for Children has 22 locations in Canada, Mexico and the United States and provides care for children suffering from a wide range of pediatric orthopedic conditions, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
