NetEffects Clients, Employees Raise More Than $32,000 For Tsunami Victims
St. Louis, Jan. 21, 2005 – When NetEffects president, Jack Bader heard the news of the horrific tsunami he knew he needed to do something. So, Bader started a matching contribution program for all of his employees and clients who joined in the tsunami relief effort. NetEffects matched 2:1 every donation that was made for the tsunami relief effort. More than $32,000 was raised.
“One of our company’s main beliefs is that you need to give back to the community. In a time like this where there is so much tragedy, this program is the least we could do,” explains Bader, “We are humbled by the support we have received with this program.”
The donations will go straight to Direct Relief International. The mission of this organization is to improve the health of people living in developing countries and those who are victims of natural disasters, war, and civil unrest. All money donated to tsunami relief through Direct Relief goes directly to the victims and their health and medical needs.
This program is in addition to the tens of thousands of dollars NetEffects donates to local charities each year.
