Voyage Home Loans Employees Contribute to Haiti Relief Efforts

Sacramento, Calif. — In an employee-led initiative, Voyage Home Loans donated over eight hundred dollars to UNICEF’s ongoing humanitarian relief effort for children in Haiti. The donations were collected by members of a team from KDND 107.9 “The End” in Sacramento. The contributions were a part of Voyage’s new Social Good Directive, which hopes to promote local, regional, and global Social Good awareness through Facebook in 2010.

The project was led by Voyage’s Carly Harrington and Corinne Blackney, who quickly and efficiently brought the employees together and organized the donations in slightly over an hour’s time after hearing about The End’s efforts via the “Wake Up Call” morning show.

“We were glad to help out,” Harrington said. “Doing all we can to help those in need is something that we believe in at Voyage, both in our personal lives and in the workplace.”

Millions of Americans have reached out to those in distress in Haiti, and UNICEF has been at the forefront of the efforts to provide relief to children in Haiti, who have been faced with dire circumstances following the January 10 earthquake.

The “Wake Up Call” and 107.9 “The End” had been calling for donations throughout the week, and continue to accept contributions at their studio. More information is available at their “Help Haiti” page on their website.

“After seeing all the media coverage on the disaster there, we really wanted to reach out and try to ease the suffering of those in need.” Blackney added. “The Wake Up Call gave us an opportunity to come together and do our part to help the kids over there.”

Voyage’s Social Good initiatives have benefited many different causes, and are representative of the company’s history of charitable projects. Voyage hopes to draw over five hundred thousand new fans to their Facebook page, Voyage Home Loans (http://www.facebook.com/VoyageHomeLoans), and encourages followers to post about their altruistic undertakings in an effort to create a group committed to making a difference in their communities.

“Our hearts go out to the victims in Haiti,” said Paul Ueckert, president of Voyage Home Loans. “I’m proud of our employees and their willingness to give what they could to ease the lives of those who have been affected by the earthquake.”
