Wesley Chapel, FL, February 7, 2012 - TraderPlanet.com, LLC and Market Technologies, LLC united to make a financial contribution to the March of Dimes. The money raised helps the March of Dimes support programs in the community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. It also helps fund groundbreaking research that is searching for ways to prevent and treat prematurity.
Preterm birth, birth before 37 weeks of pregnancy, is the leading cause of newborn death, and one million babies worldwide die each year as a result of their early birth. Babies who survive an early birth often face the risk of lifelong health challenges. At 1 in 8 babies born too soon, the United States' rate is higher than that of most developed nations.
Both Market Technologies and TraderPlanet.com are in existence to help traders better their lives by building wealth. Another way that the companies help is by sharing it's successes with the less fortunate and through charitable giving. As of February 2012, TraderPlanet.com has donated almost $200,000 to charitable organizations through auction items and financial contributions.
"Hearing the facts of how many babies are born prematurely is shocking," said Lane Mendelsohn, Market Technologies' Vice President. "A neighbor of mine who knows that I have been very involved in charitable giving approached me about a donation. Due to tough economic times, donations have suffered and now more than ever every dollar makes a difference. I was pleased to be able to contribute to the March of Dimes and the fight against preterm birth."
