Nepal Region Earthquake Fund ( Across Canada )
For the organization Canadian Red Cross (Nepal Region Earthquake Fund)
 30.0 %

Objective: $50,000

Amount Raised: $14,980

On April 25, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal near Kathmandu causing widespread devastation.  The earthquake struck a highly populated area and emergency relief including shelter, water and healthcare are urgently needed.  The best way to help them is through your financial support. CN employees are encouraged to support people impacted by this disaster by making a donation.


CN will match your contributions dollar for dollar, up to $100,000, to support Red Cross relief efforts in communities affected by earthquake. Please note that the Canadian government announced that it will match contributions by individuals, so donations to the Community Fund by employees in Canada will be matched by both CN and the federal government.


For donations of at least $20, you will be issued a tax receipt by the Community Fund, so please include your name and employee PIN number on your cheque.  CN will pay for all administrative costs for this appeal, so that every dollar employees donate will go directly to the Red Cross relief efforts. 


We want to thank all of you who have expressed your willingness to help those affected by this tragedy.  You can follow the update on this campaign through our website.


Thank you in advance for your generosity.
