IX International (IXI), a leading manufacturer and supplier of graduation and packaging accessories, announced today that it will donate a percentage of sales from the company’s graduation line of accessories to the American Red Cross. Sales of honor cords and graduation cap tassels will go to provide funds for the Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Relief and Recovery effort.
“Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by the devastation in Haiti, including thousands of our Haitian neighbors here in south Florida,” said Harshad Mehta, President and Founder of Miami based IX International.
“For years, our company has been a part of graduation celebrations around the world by providing quality accessories for the traditional caps and gowns,” Mehta noted. “We’d like to thank our customers and honor the graduates by doing our part in helping the people of Haiti.
“We are so appreciative of the IX International’s commitment to support the Red Cross and its relief efforts in Haiti,” said Alicia M. Laszewski, Chapter Executive of the American Red Cross, Broward County Chapter and Regional Marketing Officer. “Graduations are a joyous occasion and mark of passage. And now they will ensure that families in Haiti do not go hungry, that they have enough water to drink and that they can get the emergency supplies to begin cleaning up their homes and communities.”
