Fremont, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2005
SchmartBOARD, a company that develops electronic prototyping boards, has announced that 3% of all online sales will go towards the Tsunami victims during the first quarter of 2005.
According to Andrew Yaung, Schmartboards President, Schmartboard employees watched in horror with the rest of the world as many thousands of victims, and the families of victims lives were extinguished or ruined in a matter of minutes. I, in fact, was in the affected area at the time of the Tsunami with my family, and feel lucky to be back here and safe. After the holiday break and discussion of our 2005 goals for the company, we decided to give 3% of our online sales to the humanitarian aid organization, AmeriCares to benefit their tsunami relief effort.
