John Deere donates $1 million to Red Cross for Japanese relief effort

Posted by Green Fun Store on 3/22/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
John Deere has given $1 million to the Red Cross to aid in the Japanese recovery from the devastating earthquake and tsunami that devastated parts of the coast, according to Canadianbusiness.com.

In addition to the donation by the company itself, John Deere has also indicated that it will match any donations given by employees up to an additional $500,000. According to the organizaton's CEO and Chairman Samuel Allen, the company felt compelled to contribute as much as they could because of the enormous amount of people that were affected by the violent acts of nature.

The $1 million donation will not include the business' regular yearly donation of $250,000 and is considered a separate contribution. In addition to donating to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fun, Deere also plans to donate an additional $250,000 to the International Red Cross Disaster Relief fund.

While it has been clear for many years that Deere focuses on improving the quality of farm life for individuals that use its products, we now know that they feel a deep bond with the rest of humankind as well.
