StubDog.com to Donate 100% of Proceeds to Doctors Without Borders

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2010) -  In light of rapidly slowing donations to Haiti relief organizations, leading national online ticket agent StubDog.com has announced the launch of "Unite for Healing Haiti," a collective fundraising campaign where the company will donate 100 percent of the rest of this month's proceeds to Doctors Without Borders. Also starting Monday, February 22, and continuing through the end of the month, sales from select event tickets donated by participating StubDog partners will go directly to Doctors Without Borders to support their continuing emergency relief efforts in Haiti and the nearly 70 other countries in which the organization provides aid.

StubDog's latest philanthropic effort comes as no surprise. The eclectic ticket outlet was founded on the principle of giving back, having donated a portion of sales to local charitable and community-serving organizations since its inception. In partnering with Doctors Without Borders, StubDog hopes to assist the organization in its mission to deliver medical care to people in need.

"Doctors Without Borders is by far one of the most prestigious humanitarian organizations in the world," said StubDog CEO and cofounder Sam Levassar. "'Unite for Healing Haiti' was inspired by their dedicated efforts and we are honored to have the opportunity to aid them in the phenomenal work they do."

Founded in 1971 by a group of French doctors and journalists, Doctors Without Borders provides medical assistance to populations around the world, specifically those affected by violence, neglect or catastrophe. In 1999, the organization received the Noble Peace Prize for its profound charitable impact.
