AVG and Red Cross raise funds for Haiti disaster


By Jessica Stanic

AVG (AU/NZ) has continued its tradition of fund raising for special disaster charitable appeals with its latest website donation button for the Australian Red Cross’ Haiti Earthquake Appeal 2010 (right).

As well as encouraging everyone to donate, AVG is asking other organisations to use their own websites to also promote the appeal.

The Australian Red Cross launched the Haiti Earthquake Appeal 2010 following a devastating 7.3 magnitude earthquake 15 kms off the Haitian coast at approximately 5.00 pm local time on 12 January 2010. Local and international Red Cross staff and volunteers are providing relief in the most needed areas.

With a network of volunteers in 186 countries around the world, Red Cross is able to respond moments after a disaster occurs, even in locations as remote as Haiti.

To donate, please click on the Red Cross symbol in the top right hand corner which will direct you to the Red Cross website. Alternatively, please visit http://www.redcross.org.au/howyoucanhelp_Haiti_Appeal.htm
