ATU Canadian Council
Canada Red Cross for Haiti Relief Donations
In response to the overwhelming need and outpouring of ATU member’s interest and concern, the Amalgamated Transit Union Canadian Council has partnered with the Canadian Red Cross to assist in providing relief and aid to the victims of the Haiti Earthquake.
On January 12, 2010 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, collapsing buildings with over 200,000 feared dead or missing and up to 3 million affected. Most of Haiti's capital has been destroyed with this earthquake considered the strongest ever to hit the region. The Red Cross responded immediately to provide shelter, food, clean water and medical care to the many people in need of help.
The ATU Canadian Council invites you to support this urgent fundraising appeal by visiting www.redcross.ca/atu and completing the form. You will then receive an electronic tax receipt for your donation.
Further if donation is made by February 12, 2010 the Federal government will match individual donations dollar for dollar.
On behalf of the Amalgamated Transit Union Canadian Council, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for your contribution to this urgent appeal.
