(The Hosting News) – In an effort to support the American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti, Codero (www.codero.com) has joined with others in the hosting community to support and promote Hosting for Haiti (www.HostingForHaiti.com).
Partnering with the American Red Cross (www.redcross.org), Hosting for Haiti was created to promote and encourage relief efforts to Haitians who are in need of relief. Following the devastating 7.0 earthquake that occurred January 12, 2010, an estimated 1.5 million people have been left without a home. As a result, organizations such as the American Red Cross are critical in providing aid, shelter and other supplies such as food and water to these survivors.
“In times of need, we recognize the importance of banding together with others in our industry,” stated Ryan Elledge, Chief Operations Officer at Codero. “While our donation is a small step in repairing Haiti, we hope it encourages our employees, customers and other friends in the industry to participate.”
For those interested in donating, a direct link to the American Red Cross can be found at HostingForHaiti.com. 100% of donations will go directly to the Haiti Relief and Development Fund.
In an effort to spread the word to increase relief efforts, Codero has posted information about Hosting for Haiti on its blog (www.codero.com/blog/hosting-for-haiti) and encourages others to follow the progress on Twitter by following @hostingforhaiti or use the hash tag #hostingforhaiti in related posts. Industry partners who would like to participate should email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
