Today we announced a donation of $50,000 to Red Cross wildfire disaster relief efforts in Alberta. Together with our issuers we’re also waiving any interchange related to Red Cross donations between May 7, 2016 and July 8, 2016. MasterCard will also match every employee Red Cross donation through our MasterCard Cares portal.
We’re supporting the tens of thousands of Albertans whose lives, homes and livelihoods have been devastated by the wildfires in Fort McMurray. During times like these our priorities as community members become clear. And just like so many Canadians who are reaching out to Fort McMurray residents to offer assistance, we’re eager to do what we can to help.
If you’d like to make your own donation or find out how you can help, please visit the Red Cross Alberta Appeal.
