Were passionate about two things at AEDs Today: the first, to save lives by supplying customers with lifesaving AEDs and defibrillators; the second, to make a positive difference in the world all the while.
Since our inception at AEDs Today we have interwoven nonprofit organizations that have shared this passion for bettering the world within our daily operations. We make a point to donate to nonprofit organizations that dedicate themselves to both humanitarian and environmental issues and are proud members of 1% for the Planet.
AEDs Today has partnered with a limited number of nonprofit organizations whose missions we strongly believe in and are honored to support. Below are some of the organizations and individuals that dedicate their time and lives to fostering positive change.
We enable you to designate what nonprofit you would like the donation from your sale to go to during the checkout process. Please feel free to familiarize yourself with these amazing organizations and find the nonprofit whose mission best strikes a chord.
