We’ve all been following the terrible news coming from Haiti.  Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the devastating earthquake. 

Like many other companies and individuals we are doing what we can to help, in particular through our long-standing partnership with NetHope.  We have provided  an initial grant, mobilized our Disaster Response Team and are encouraging our employees to donate to aid organizations and then matching their donations through our U.S. employee gift matching program.

We are also using MSN and Bing to raise awareness of the disaster, and encourage everyone to help where they can.   

Akhtar Badshah, who leads our Community Affairs team, has more details in his two posts here and here on the Microsoft on the Issues blog.

If you’d like to help or donate you can find more information here.
