Blackthorn is delighted to support the efforts of Watsi…
Watsi is a nonprofit organization that uses technology to make healthcare accessible to everyone, particularly those in developing countries who do not have access to affordable medical care. The organization’s mission is to fight the traditionally high costs of healthcare by working with doctors, providers, and payors to donate their time, research, materials, and equipment to reduce overhead.
Watsi offers a crowdfunding platform that allows donors to make direct, personal connections with their beneficiaries and donate as little as $5 or as much as they want. Watsi offers 100 percent of the donations it collects from the crowd to the person in need, specifically to fund their medical treatments. For every dollar given, Watsi aims to provide healthcare to those who need it.
