 Ford Donates U.S. $300,000 for Relief Effort in Philippines, Will Match Employee Donations

DATE: Will be calculated from "Release Start Date" field.

Dear Colleagues,
 
The magnitude of loss and devastation in the Philippines from the super typhoon is heartbreaking.
 
It is very clear that a lot of people need help.

At Ford Philippines, our Tacloban dealer, whose dealership was demolished, has set up a temporary shelter for employees, with food, clothing and bedding provided by the broader Ford Philippines team and others. We are still working with authorities to account for all of the dealer personnel.

We are working with the local Red Cross and are providing them an E-150 ambulance to support their relief efforts. We are also supporting volunteers with a Ford Ranger, who are on their way to distribute relief supplies.

As our Manila-based staff continues doing all it can to help, I'm pleased to inform you that Ford Motor Company and the Ford Fund are donating U.S. $300,000 to the Red Cross to help with recovery and relief efforts.

I know many of you want to help as well. To that end, Ford Motor Company will match employee donations to the Red Cross of up to U.S. $100,000.
 
Donate
Donations can be made via the Philippine Red Cross website http://www.redcross.org.ph/donate, or via your country’s Red Cross website (full list is found here: http://www.ifrc.org/en/who-we-are/directory/web-pages/

If you make a donation, please send a copy of your correspondence to Elizabeth McAdam, ebrakeb1@ford.com, who will make sure that Ford matches your contribution.
 
Our thoughts and prayers go to all those affected by this tragedy.
 
Thank you for your support.
