Castlight for a Cause: How Castlight and Our Users Can Help Recent Disaster Relief

As the U.S. faces off with the major challenges of rebuilding after a number of historic back-to-back hurricanes and recent California firestorms, we at Castlight wanted to play a small part in helping to support relief efforts. Users across the country can now contribute to Habitat for Humanity when using Castlight to earn and manage their incentives.

Our customers have the choice to add a donation to Habitat for Humanity to their Reward Center, and employees are able to redeem the points they earn in the app for a donation to Habitat for Humanity’s response efforts. Castlight will match user donations through the end of the year, up to $10,000, with our own donation to Habitat for Humanity.

Users can earn donation points by taking positive actions to manage their health care. For example, users can accumulate points by using a fitness tracker, monitoring their nutrition, using a sleep management tool, or learning how to better manage stress. Typically, users can earn points to redeem rewards like health insurance premium discounts, gift cards, and prizes. Now, one of those rewards can be a donation to help those affected by this year’s disasters.

For employers looking for more information on how to add Habitat for Humanity to their Reward Center, please contact your Customer Success Manager. We look forward to helping our communities and matching your donations in the months to come !

Castlight app has long been a useful tool in times of emergency. It allows users to find the nearest urgent care center and emergency room, makes their insurance cards readily available when they arrive, and even provides transportation information they need to get there easily.
