We felt the need to give to the people affected by the tsunami, and we felt Facebook offered a great platform.
Aurora, IL (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
Comfort Suites Aurora and Hampton Inn & Suites Aurora are making it easy to contribute to tsunami relief efforts in Japan with a new online initiative. For each of the first two hundred Facebook followers they gain, they will donate $5 to the Red Cross Tsunami Relief Fund.
The earthquake and tsunami hit the northeast coast of Japan on March 11, leaving thousands dead, hundreds of thousands of buildings toppled, and parts of the country’s infrastructure in shambles. The magnitude 8.9 earthquake was one of the five most powerful to occur anywhere in the world since 1900, and the overall cost of the catastrophe could top $300 billion eventually.
“The earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan earlier this year was a devastating tragedy,” said Director of Sales Tom Stahl. “We felt the need to give to the people affected by the tsunami, and we felt Facebook offered a great platform.”
All Facebook users need to do to be a part of the relief effort and assist the people of Japan is to follow either Comfort Suites Aurora or Hampton Inn & Suites Aurora. Once they have taken that step, the hotels will handle the rest, contributing $5 per follower for the first 200 followers for the Red Cross Tsunami Relief Fund. The Red Cross fund is used to shelter, feed and provide emotional support to victims of the Pacific Tsunami and Japan Earthquake.
