Some of you work for employers who match your charitable contributions. Good for you, and for them.
Others, like me, work for cheap companies that don’t match. (I’m self-employed).
So I was delighted to hear that two outfits WILL match my contributions to the American Red Cross for Haiti relief efforts. DealNews.com will match your contribution dollar-for-dollar until Thursday Feb. 11 (unless they meet their $50,000 goal earlier) and the Starwood Preferred Guest program will match your donation of points (2,000 points equals a $25 donation). Yay for them, for us and for the people who need our help in Haiti.
