Vision Critical Raises $20,000 for Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Efforts
Global research and technology firm Vision Critical® is proud to announce a total donation of $20,000 to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in the wake of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster in unity with our Global Partner Program colleagues, INTAGE Group.
Vision Critical’s President and Founder, Andrew Reid, immediately called for a campaign that would allow the company’s employees to make a contribution to the Japanese relief efforts, supported by a dollar-for-dollar corporate donation matching program.
Vision Critical’s team reached their fundraising goal of $10,000 dollars through contributions made by employees worldwide over a two-week period, which was then matched by a $10,000 corporate donation.
MSF is one of the world’s leading independent international medical relief organizations and has sent medical teams to support the government-led earthquake and tsunami response in Japan where their teams are running mobile clinics and conducting needs assessments to determine the full scope of the necessary response.
“In times of crisis,” said Reid, “We are able to show that Vision Critical is not just a business, but a community—one which extends beyond the walls of our offices, to all the people we touch in business and life.”
Please contribute to the MSF Emergency Relief Fund.
