ShelterBox USA Embraces New Age of Donations
LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL (January 23, 2010) –
“We are thrilled by the response of social and peer-to-peer fundraising on our behalf. Having someone recommend our organization is one of the highest compliments we can receive,” said Miller. “The stories on how various donations are coming into ShelterBox shows the creativeness of people who can make a difference.”
Thanks to these creative fundraising opportunities, now it takes less than a second to spread the word about an organization’s latest need. One email blast from a supporter of ShelterBox constituted a $23,000 donation from her friends, and more than $10,000 was garnered on a single Twitter comment.
Elsa Cade, a reader of the blog under the name TexMex, spurred the blogosphere to focus on ShelterBox and their urgent need to send shelter and life-saving equipment to Haiti. The blog has already raised $100,000 to help 1,000 disaster survivors in just a matter of days. “ShelterBox is such an ideal project for what is happening in Haiti. The product is something our readers are willing to invest in because it gives tangible results,” Cade said. “People can visualize that a simple $100 donation can house one person for up to a year.”

Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has provided shelter and dignity following over 100 disasters in more than 60 countries, bringing the organization to the forefront of international disaster relief. ShelterBox instantly responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid. In many cases “ShelterBoxes” have made the difference between life and death.

Thank you

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
