Deadline extended for Haiti earthquake relief donations

Anonymous donor challenges PARC to raise $10,000 for American Red Cross

FEBRUARY 2010 – Today, PARC Foundation decided to extend the Haiti Relief donation period deadline to next Friday, February 12, 2010. PARC Management, LLC, and its not-for-profit partner, PARC Foundation, have been challenged by an anonymous donor to raise $10,000 for the American Red Cross Relief Efforts in Haiti. To further help the cause, all funds raised via PARC Foundation’s website will be matched by this anonymous donor, up to $10,000. If achieved, $20,000 will be donated to the American Red Cross for Haiti Relief on behalf of PARC Management and PARC Foundation.

The whole movement is due to a PARC Management employee’s internal email. The employee sent an email out to the company informing of the ways to donate to the relief efforts in Haiti. Inspired by the email, PARC Management employees donated their own funds for Haiti Relief and raised $650 on Friday alone. This outstanding generosity caught the attention of a prominent member of the Jacksonville, Florida community, who wishes to remain anonymous. As the already-devastated Haiti felt an extremely powerful aftershock this morning, the anonymous donor acknowledged PARC Management’s original efforts and challenged the employees to raise more.

Anyone may participate by going directly to PARC Foundation’s website (www.PARC-Foundation.org) and clicking on the “Donate Now!” tab, accessible from any page on PARC Foundation’s website. 100% of the donations made via PARC Foundation’s website between January 20, 2010 and February 12, 2010 will be donated directly to the American Red Cross.
