Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I wonder if they're able to claim a tax write-off or taking a loss when the for-profit hospitals with obscene prices then "mark down" their prices to provide care for the un(der)-insured. "Look, it's charity! We feel that our $100 procedure is worth $1000, therefore we're donating/losing $900 worth when we reduce their bill to the normal amount!"
