American Red Cross Thanks JobsInLogistics.com for Contribution to Japanese Relief Fund
Specialty job board raises awareness, money for tsunami-stricken nation
North Miami Beach, FL – April 19, 2011 – On March 11th, 2011, a massive earthquake and tsunami hit northeastern Japan, killing over 14,000 people. JobsInLogistics.com immediately responded by creating a special Japanese Relief Fund promotion and contributed a portion of the proceeds to the American Red Cross. Registered companies and independent recruiters were sent an email in mid-March, asking them to purchase a discounted job posting package by calling into the JobsInLogistics.com corporate office in South Florida. JobsInLogistics.com then matched their savings for two full weeks, collecting thousands of dollars for the American Red Cross.
“This contribution from JobsInLogistics.com and its members could not come at a more critical time,” said Michael J. Brown, vice president of corporate and foundation giving at the American Red Cross. “Assistance from our corporate and humanitarian partners is key as we meet the needs of earthquake and tsunami survivors.”
JobsInLogistics.com would like to express thanks to clients who participated in its donation efforts to help support disaster relief efforts for those affected by the earthquake in Japan.
“I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude to our clients who participated in the program for the American Red Cross,” said Don Firth, President of JobsInLogistics.com. “In the face of this unprecedented disaster, we are moved by your generosity, and hopeful that in joining forces, we have helped to make a positive impact on the relief efforts in Japan.”
