More on the earthquake

Thanks to S.Y. Hui at Global Sources for responding to my request in yesterday's piece for more information on what our industry's doing for the victims of the Sichuan Earthquake. The company announced on Wednesday that it and its team members would donate up to Rmb1 million to appeal. "The company will donate RMB 500,000 to relief agencies working in the region. In addition, it will match contributions from team members of up to RMB 250,000, for a total donation of up to RMB 1,000,000", it said.

Chairman and CEO, Merle Hinrichs is quoted as saying “With over two-thirds of our team members living and working in mainland China, this tragedy hits close to home for our team members in China and around the world".
