Hubert Burda Media, a globally operating media and tech company, is selling its online health marketplace Jameda to the healthcare unicorn Docplanner.
Germany's largest doctor-patient platform Jameda launched a unique fundraising campaign in April 2020 to recognise the tireless efforts of doctors during the Corona pandemic: At danke-coronahelden.de (i.e."Thanks, Corona heroes), patients could thank their doctors with a heart emoji - and do something good with just a few clicks. For every 100 hearts sent, one euro went into the Jameda charity pot. Burda's doctor-patient platform collected a total of 15,000 euros in donations during the campaign, which will now go to the Corona emergency aid fund of the German Red Cross and to the largest independent organisation for emergency medical aid, Doctors Without Borders.
"These challenging times have highlighted what really matters: sticking together and showing gratitude and appreciation for each other. Our acknowledgment goes especially to the health workers who fight every day with full commitment for the health of each individual and for the normalisation of everyday life. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who participated in making the fundraising project a reality. We are happy to be able to support the organisations 'Doctors without Borders' and the 'German Red Cross'."
