Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 30, 2005
United Shipping, Inc announced today that the creation of its United Shipping Incorporated Tsunami Relief Fund (USITRF) only 4 weeks ago, and spearheaded by its President, Fred Hall, has raised over Twenty Four Thousand Dollars (US$24,000.00) and will be distributed equally to four charities recommended by its partners in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India and Thailand. ÂCompelled to aid those in need in many countries that we work with on a daily basis, we know that every dollar makes a difference and these funds will go a long way in realizing some positive results out of such a horrific human tragedy. United Shipping has received contributions from companies and individuals,Â stated the emotionally charged President. The USITRF is still receiving donations on behalf of the victims and their families. If you would like to assist, send your contribution to:

ÂThe spirit of the United Shipping family has amazed me beyond my wildest expectations. We have been in communications with our partners, those who are most directly affected by this tragedy. And yet, with all they are doing to help their fellow countrymen, with all they are doing to try and restore some sense of normality to their homelands, they have taken the time to write a note of thanks for our efforts. In the 16 years IÂve been in United Shipping, IÂve been fortunate to make many long-lasting friendships. However, the response to our call for aid to the victims of this tragedy has brought me to my knees,Â said Mr. Hall.
ÂWe are fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of people, and itÂs so heartwarming when people of all ethnicities and religious backgrounds can put aside these distinctions for the common good of all,Â stated Sandy Thomas, an eleven year employee with United Shipping. ÂThis is a true testament of who we are and the value we have for human life as a United Shipping Family,Â concluded Greg Treco, Director of Operations.
Thanks for your support.
