Affinity4 (Norfolk, VA), one of the nation’s leading affinity-based marketers specializing in helping charities, ministries and other nonprofit organizations raise funds, announced today that it is making the relief effort in Haiti its First Quarter of 2010 Volunteer Activity.
Working through Operation Blessing International, a nonprofit organization based in Virginia Beach, Virginia that specializes in disaster relief, Affinity4 will be raising awareness of the need for donations to help the Haiti recover from the catastrophic earthquake – the nation’s worst in 200 years. Affinity4 will raise funds throughout its own company, as well as outreach to fellow building tenants, using email marketing, flyers and word of mouth. Contribution checks will be made payable to Operation Blessing, an organization that has touched the lives of over 215 million people worldwide through its disaster relief services including providing emergency supplies, water, food and medical care – all very much in need by the people of Haiti.
According to Affinity President and CEO and Chairman of the Board Stephen D. Halliday, J.D., CPA, “The earthquake in Haiti has inflicted a devastating blow to this already impoverished nation. The country will need all the help we can give to rebuild its infrastructure, provide for basic necessities and help restore both the lives and the spirit of the Haitian people. We encourage everyone to make whatever contribution they can to any of the well-established humanitarian relief organizations such as Operation Blessing. Together, we can help restore this nation and offer its people the encouragement and support they need more than ever as they recover from this terrible disaster.”
