On January 14 CNW announced that we would be donating all revenue generated from Haiti earthquake-related news releases to the Canadian Red Cross.

Well, the numbers are in and today we donated $122,356.91 to Haiti relief efforts!  Carolyn McGill-Davidson, our president and CEO, made the donation at the CPRS Ottawa/Gatineau chapter conference earlier today.

This was a program that everyone supported from the moment we put it together; from our team members and newswire clients to all the people who retweeted our announcement.

Our experience demonstrates that even a small organization like CNW can make a meaningful contribution to the global community!

For more information on CNW’s fundraising program, see our Social Media Release.
