September 1, 2011 (Denver, Colorado) –, a website connecting thousands of individual property owners offering short-term furnished and unfurnished rentals with potential renters across North America, today kicks off its “CHBO Gives Back” campaign. For every new customer or renewal made in the month of September, CHBO will donate $1 to Clinica Verde.

Clinica Verde is an environmentally sustainable, not-for-profit health clinic for women and children living in poverty in Nicaragua. The clinic’s mission is to create a global prototype for an environmentally sustainable health clinic for disadvantaged women and children.

CHBO’s CEO, Kimberly Smith, says she believes the clinic showcases social entrepreneurialism at its best and that’s why CHBO is helping to raise awareness and funds for the organization.

“CHBO is honored to be sharing in Clinica Verde’s mission and practical application of health and wellness. While CHBO focuses on finding solutions for property owners and renters, we are also aware housing is just one of many struggles people around the world face. CHBO believes there are solutions we can all support that will result in improved health, wellness and prosperity around the world,” she says.

Susan Dix Lyons, the founder for Clinica Verde, says she is grateful for the contributions of U.S. companies like CHBO and hopes that CHBO’s action will inspire others to take action and support Clinica Verde.

“Clinica Verde depends on contributions from companies and individuals from around the world. We hope that others will join us in our mission to offer clinical care, nutrition education and support in a whole health environment to families in need,” adds Dix Lyons.

How CHBO Customers Can Help

Individuals can either renew their existing property listings or register new property listings during the month of September and CHBO will automatically make a $1 donation to Clinica Verde for each transaction. Also, customers can help spread the word about the promotion by sharing CHBO with friends and family – which can easily be done through social media. Further, CHBO customers can make a direct donation to Clinica Verde by clicking on the “Donate Now” button at

“Even small donations can lead to big changes and everyone has the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of impoverished families,” adds Smith.
