Savant has teamed with its network of integrators to donate $50,000 to support the World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, a charity designed to track and better understand the virus and help fund vaccine research and manufacturing.
Starting in July 2020, Savant began commiting a portion of all proceeds from its Pro Remote X2 (in rose gold and jet black finishes) toward support for COVID-19 relief efforts.
“I am proud to report that Savant’s integrator channel supported this effort in a big way and today we are able to announce the donation of $50,000 to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund led by the World Health Organization (WHO),” says JC Murphy, president, Savant.
Savant’s donation supports the WHO’s efforts, along with key partners, to track and better understand how the COVID-19 virus spreads, ensuring that patients around the world get the care they need and frontline workers receive essential supplies and data.
The WHO also supports vital research working toward the development of a vaccine and treatments for all impacted by the pandemic. Anyone interested in learning more about the organization and supporting the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund can visit here.
“I want to recognize those integrators that participated in this critical initiative, helping to support communities all over the world and simply say thank you. Because of their support, Savant will be donating $50,000 to the United Nations Foundation this holiday season,” says Murphy.
According to its website, the United Nations Foundation acts as a strategic partner to help the UN mobilize the ideas, people, and resources it needs to deliver change. The organization focuses on issues at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals, build initiatives across sectors to solve problems at scale and engage influencers and citizens who seek action.
