In a note to employees, Chairman, CEO and President of Sony Corporation, Sir Howard Stringer, announced that the company will donate $250,000 to aid in the disaster relief efforts in Haiti. The contribution will be made on behalf of the entire corporation to the American Red Cross and Save the Children, two organizations already on the ground in Haiti, and a third charity to be named shortly.
Sony’s U.S. employees are encouraged to donate, too, through a special matching gift program set up in accordance with Sony’s philanthropic policies. Sony will match all dollars donated by its U.S. employees to the American Red Cross or Save the Children during the campaign period, which runs from Jan 19-Feb 19 2010, up to a grand total of $100,000.
