Discover matching donations to Red Cross for Haitian relief

I'm not sure if this is the proper place to post this so, if not, please move it.

 

I just logged on to my Discover account online and a popup message appeared.  It said that Discover will match  donations to the Red Cross for Haitian relief (up to 1 million dollars, total)

 

The donation must come from Cash Rewards. 

 

It only appeared once and only briefly, so I called Discover and the CSR confirmed that this is true.

 

I've always liked Discover . . . . now I like them even more.

Thanks for letting us know, I had already made a donation through my employer's matching program and just now I made another donation through Discover's program.  The need is of course enormous; Haiti is a country with an extremely tragic history.

 

For some historical background about the country, see this thread:

Re: Discover matching donations to Red Cross for Haitian relief

good PR move for them to do this.  Regardless, I had $40 something in bonus laying around, so I gave another $20 on top of my text donation.  Now let's just hope all this gets there quickly and to the people who need it the most.

I donated $20 from my cash back on top the $10 I gave the Red Cross.  I feel like giving more.
