  4. Quicken Loans Helps Haiti Disaster Relief Efforts
On Tuesday January 12th Haiti experienced a catastrophic earthquake, a 7.0 on the Richter magnitude scale. Between 217,000 and 230,000 people were identified as dead as well as 300,000 reported injured and an additional 1,000,000 now homeless.

Over the next four weeks following the Haiti earthquake, Quicken Loans and their sister companies joined together and through a series of conducted auctions, jean days, potlucks and payroll deduction campaigns they were able to raise a total of $71,723.  Out of that total, $53,303 went to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund, $10,000 went to rebuilding the Christianville Clinic in Haiti, $5,000 was given to Samaritan Feet, which helps supply shoes for Haitians, and $3,420 went to UNICEF.

Thank you everybody from Quicken Loans and their sister companies for helping to make a difference in the lives of so many who are struggling right now. Our hearts go out to the people of Haiti.
