Red Cross Relief and Aid for Japan

Red Cross Relief and Aid for Japan

Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of concern and well-wishes for the victims of the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami. The powerful 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck Japan on March 11, 2011 and then triggered a tsunami that left devastation in its wake. We have had numerous requests for a mechanism to send monetary contributions to assist in relief efforts.

In response to the both the urgency and employee concern, MMSCAN is partnering with the Canadian Red Cross to contribute to the relief effort. The Red Cross response was immediate with local volunteers working around the clock to support emergency response efforts including evacuation, search and rescue and emergency first aid.

If you are able to assist, we invite you to support this urgent fundraising appeal by visiting www.redcross.ca/mitsubishimotors and completing the form. You will then receive an electronic tax receipt.

Also, for your information, MMC issued the following statement:

“Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) would like to offer sincere condolences and sympathy to the victims of the Tohoku Earthquake. We pray from the depth of our hearts that the devastated area attains recovery as soon as possible.”

“The MMC group in Japan has confirmed a donation of 30 million yen ($368,000 Cdn) to assist the victims and damaged areas. As an additional support, MMC will supply vehicles to accommodate the circumstances and needs of local authorities in the area.”

On behalf of MMSCAN, I thank you for your consideration in helping the victims of this natural disaster in Japan.

Sincerely,

Koji Soga
