Are You Helping Haiti?

On Monday, I received an e-mail from Hannah Kempski, marketing manager at Healthworks Fitness Centers for Women, Boston, talking about how the club was helping Haiti after the earthquake last week. On Jan. 14, the company announced it would donate all enrollment fees for the remainder of January as well as match all contributions made by members to make a total matching donation of $20,000 to Boston-based Partners in Health.

Just three days later, Healthworks members had already donated more than $30,000 to the organization, making the total contribution by Healthworks and its community more than $50,000. Currently, Healthworks is seeking local partners to match anything above the $20,000 they will match.

Is your club doing something to help Haiti? If so, let us know!
