American employees, customers help Nepal

American’s 2015 Disaster Relief Awareness campaign raised more than $95,000 to support  the American Red Cross in their mission help others adversely affected by disasters. Throughout March, April and May, American promoted personal disaster preparedness and raised funds for the Red Cross through mileage incentives, public announcements and more. On April 25, a devastating earthquake in Nepal put a human face on the urgency and importance of this mission.

American extended the campaign to include relief efforts and raised $37,017 specifically for Nepal. Another $58,931 was earmarked to support various stateside efforts. These funds would go to work immediately, alleviating suffering and bringing hope as only the Red Cross can.

All this was made possible because American, our employees and customers and the Red Cross worked together toward a common cause — to offer aid in times of disaster and destruction. When our employees’ efforts combine with the genereous hearts of customers, we see first hand the power of giving and the difference it makes.
