Dear BookRenter Community,

When the news of the devastating earthquake in Haiti reached us, we at BookRenter wanted to do something to help as quickly as possible.  We also heard from many of our customers, who were also interested in contributing to the relief efforts.

As such, we decided to quickly raise money to donate to Relief International (RI), an organization known for its low overhead and hands-on efforts.  With our customers’ support, we set out to donate 5% of all rental revenue (up to $25,000) to aid victims of the earthquake.  Our plan was announced on January 14th, and the rapid outpouring of support from our community truly amazed us.  Thanks to your efforts, we met our goal in less than 10 days, and the money is now on the way.

So where are those funds going, now that the check has been cut and sent? RI is using our donation to send food, medical supplies, and other high-demand items to the people of Haiti who so desperately need it.  The organization is also running emergency clinics to provide urgent medical care and surgeries.  Thanks to RI and your help, together we can all take pride in knowing we’re helping to make a small but significant difference for those in need.

Thank you.

Michael Geller

Vice President
