Floating Doctors has a unique approach of employing cutting-edge technology, traditional medicine and altruism to promote better health, and the improvement of health care delivery worldwide.
Northridge, CA (PRWEB) October 27, 2010
vitaminID.com, makers of customized daily vitamin packs, issued an online survey in September to over 1000 healthy consumers. Over 70% of consumers preferred that brands do something beneficial with the money instead of coupons. This can be witnessed in the upswing of many brands doing more around Social Responsibility. One brand, vitaminID.com turned this insight into sponsorship of Dr. Benjamin LaBrot and the crew of the Southern Wind on their four-month Honduran expedition providing preventative medicine and vitamins where they are needed most.
"Floating Doctors has a unique approach of employing cutting-edge technology, traditional medicine and altruism to promote better health, and the improvement of health care delivery worldwide." Josh Minnick, brand manager of vitaminID.com. "With this sponsorship, we are able to do something good for the world while engaging our customers. Utilizing the new technologies our customers are able to ride along with Dr. Ben and friends on their journey via video, pictures and twitter updates. Too often the money people donate has no visible effects for the person making the donation. We are trying to use technology to close this perception."
Floating Doctors will be bringing their personalized medicine to four major ports in Honduras from October 2010 through the end of the year. To learn more about Floating Doctors and follow their journey visit vitaminID.com.
