Just got word that the online electronics seller DealNews.com is offering a 100 percent match for donations to the American Red Cross to benefit Haiti. The site is matching donations dollar for dollar up to $50,000 (so with DealNews’ share they hope to raise $100,000 total).
DealNews’ matching pledge continues through Feb. 11 or until the site raises a grand total of $100,000. “If I may, I respectfully request that you please use some of the money you’ve saved reading our sites to make a donation to Haiti earthquake relief,” said the site’s CEO Dan de Grandpre in a blog post. Here’s how:
- Make a donation online at RedCross.org
- Keep your confirmation email and forward it to email@example.com.
- DealNews will match 100 percent of your donation until it hits $50,000 or until February 11.
