Hurricane Sandy ravaged several cities and states on the East Coast of the United States. The storm and its aftermath has left thousands of families struggling to rebuild their lives.
In an effort
to help those affected by the storm, the Salesforce.com Foundation led a
matching donation challenge with salesforce.com employees last week. To build
on that momentum, the Foundation is opening the matching program to the public
and inviting our partners and customers to join us in making a contribution to
the Red Cross.
If you make a donation this week, we’ll match your gifts up to a total of $500,000.
Foundation has also set up a Chatter group for nonprofit organizations who have
been impacted by the storm. It is intended to be a collaborative community
where nonprofits can work together with the Foundation to surface additional
resources needed to get their nonprofits up and running at full speed again.
If you work for a nonprofit in the storm affected area and you want to join the Chatter group, please email Ian Atlas at firstname.lastname@example.org and request to join the NPO Cloud. Ian will respond with a username and login for the org.
