Sometimes I like the company I work for...

e-mail from yesterday:

We have had many requests asking if we could help with relief for those affected by Hurricane Katrina, and we have decided to have a "jeans day" firmwide. The cost to you will be a minimum donation of $5 to wear jeans Tuesday, September 6. Checks should be written to the American Red Cross or, if you prefer, Salvation Army (mark checks "Hurricane Relief"); checks and other donations will be sent to the Accounting Department in the Omaha office, so we can send the donation off as one. K**** R*** will match donations up to $2,500. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

e-mail from today:

In light of the magnitude of the devastation by Hurricane Katrina, today we decided to increase the firm's donation to the hurricane relief funds from $2,500 to $10,000. In addition, so far fundraising from just a few floors of the Omaha office has already raised more than $2,500. We very much appreciate the response so far and encourage everyone to be generous.

I hope all of you have a healthy and relaxing holiday weekend.


Sometimes "The Man" ain't so bad. Nice to see my money doubled and some people being taken care of.
