South Asia Disaster Relief Message to PRSA Members

Dear PRSA Member,

We at PRSA are deeply saddened by the recent tragedy in South Asia and would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to those who have lost loved ones. During this great time of need, one of the best gifts you can give to the victims of this tragedy is a monetary donation to the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts. There are three ways to donate:

* Call 1-800-HELPNOW
* Make a secure on-line donation at redcross.org
* Send a check or money order to American Red Cross, International Response Fund, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013, (designate South Asia relief)
