Garden City, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2010
The National Association of Professional Women today announced that the association - the fastest growing professional women's association in the country - is aggressively encouraging its more than 150,000 members to donate money to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development fund by logging on to the NAPW homepage at http://www.napw.com, and clicking on the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development link.
"Our members are extremely generous and philanthropic under normal circumstances," says Matthew Proman, President of the National Association of Professional Women. "As the devastation in Haiti continues to tax the limits of human comprehension, our members and staff have been asking that we provide an expedient, effective, and secure way to contribute money in support of the relief efforts."
According to Nicole Johnson, NAPW's Managing Director of Member Services and Communications, NAPW has partnered with the American Red Cross, and added a Red Cross micro-site linked to the NAPW homepage for easy access by members, and to facilitate secure credit card donations for the Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development fund.
"During this critical time of need, NAPW is committed to employing the full weight of our network to raise money for the Red Cross to help the people of Haiti," says Johnson. "We know that when many people come together to do something good, something great is often the result. I'm proud to see that many of our professional women are eager to associate their contributions to the American Red Cross with their NAPW membership. As such, we've made it very simple. All they have to do is go to the NAPW homepage and click on the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development banner. All donations will go directly to the American Red Cross," Johnson notes.
Additionally, NAPW pledges to donate 10 cents for every dollar members contribute to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development fund.
