As some of you may know, I recently ran a promotion where all proceeds from the sale of any Artisan Polymer Clay item would go directly to the Red Cross Victorian Floods Appeal 2011. With your support we managed to raise and donate $350 to this worthy cause so thankyou!
I had not yet sent off the money and was debating the best way to do this (cheque, credit card, etc) and this morning I decided the quickest and easiest way would be to donate online. This is the response I received back:
Dear Ms Rapinett,
Thankyou for your generous donation. Funds raised by the Red Cross Victorian Floods Appeal will be used to support individuals, families and communities in areas affected by the 2011 Victorian Floods. Red Cross will not deduct any costs from public donations to cover Appeal costs. All interest earned on donations will be invested back into the Appeal. In the even there are surplus funds any remaining monies will be used to support people and communities in preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters in Victoria.
Robert Tickner CEO Australian Red Cross
Again, I thank you for helping me to help those affected by the recent disasters. Hopefully we have made a difference.
