Thank you very much to everyone who participated in our Kōkua Philippines matching gifts program to support disaster relief efforts from Typhoon Haiyan. Together, through customer donations & a matching gift from the Western Union Foundation, a total of $101,270.00 will be given to the American Red Cross !
Thousands of customers generously gave and more than $51,000 was collected at checkouts statewide. The Western Union Foundation  contributed an additional $50,000 to match customer donations nearly dollar-for-dollar.
With so many friends and family members of Hawaii’s residents affected by Typhoon Haiyan, we knew our customers would want to help. We are always impressed and appreciative of the generosity of our customers and are proud that our partner, the Western Union Foundation, could support your efforts by matching your donations at checkout. We know that every gift is significant and will be appreciated by those in need in the Philippines.
