Fundraising Deadline extended for Haiti Earthquake Victims
The Montecristo Relief Organization is close to its goal of raising $250,000 by matching the first $125,000 in contributions made by Altadis U.S.A. employees, retailers, consumers and vendors. This is in addition to the $25,000 donated by the Organization immediately after the disaster. All funds are going directly to Food For the Poor, which is providing desperately needed food and water as well as other assistance to victims on an ongoing basis.
Those who would like to contribute and have their donation matched by the Montecristo Relief Organization, should please make checks payable to Food For the Poor and send to:

The Montecristo Relief Organization was established in 1999 by Altadis U.S.A. after several devastating hurricanes swept through the Caribbean killing thousands of people, injuring millions and causing unimaginable suffering. Since its inception the Montecristo Relief Organization has donated millions of dollars to build homes, schools, medical facilities and provide scholarships and economic opportunities to victims of natural disasters.
