Direct Capital recently announced that we raised more than $4,000 for Doctors Without Borders, a medical humanitarian organization that is currently providing aid and relief to Haiti’s earthquake victims.
The Direct Capital team raised more than $2,000 through its monthly Denim for Donations fundraising program and the company matched those donations for a total contribution of $4,034.
Each month, we hold a “Denim for Donations” through which employees donate cash or goods and in return are given the option to wear jeans for the day. A different charity is selected for each Denim for Donations Day and 100% of the donations go to the designated organization.
“Given the terrible tragedy Haiti experienced recently, we felt Doctors Without Borders was the perfect organization to support this month,” said John Land, Direct Capital’s Director of Human Capital Management. “We connected with their ability to provide such a direct and immediate impact to help those who need it most. I’m proud of how our employees stepped up and we as a company enthusiastically matched their effort. ”
