THANK YOU!

We thank CVS/pharmacy

on raising $3.8 million
with their $500,000
matching challenge.

Our thanks to Alan Shawn Feinstein of The Feinstein Foundation, John Hazen White, Jr. of Taco, Inc. and The John & Happy White Foundation for their generous challenge matches, which resulted in Rhode islanders showing an outpouring of support for victims of the tsunami.

PRESS RELEASE
Friday, January 28, 2005
INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS NEEDS FOR TSUNAMI RELIEF PROGRAM MET
Thanks to Generous Rhode Islanders, Fundraising Efforts to Wrap Up
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies today announced that the $1.2 billion (1.4 billion Swiss francs) pledged worldwide in the 30 days since the tsunami was sufficient to meet the costs of the entire Red Cross tsunami relief program. Following the Federation's lead, the American Red Cross believes that current contributions and pledges, when received from the American public, will be sufficient to carry out its immediate and longer-term plans to assist survivors of the deadly tsunami that roared ashore December 26, 2004.
