Harley Donates $250,000 to Japan Relief Effort Hot

harley_davidson_logoHarley-Davidson hasn't been impacted by the Japan earthquake nearly as much as motorcycle manufacturers like Honda and Kawasaki, but the Harley-Davidson Foundation is still stepping up to help the Japanese relief effort. The Harley-Davidson Foundation announced today that it was making a $250,000 donation to Japan.

Harley's donation will go to the Red Cross and will help the overall disaster relief efforts in Japan.

"Our hearts go out to all the people in Japan who have been impacted by these tragic events," said Foundation President Gail Lione. "It is important to all of us at Harley-Davidson to support the relief efforts and help the country through this devastating time."

Harley-Davidson's Japan subsidiary has also set up a relief fund. The Japan subsidiary has been sending food, water, and supplies to disaster areas.

If you'd like to donate to the Japan relief effort, you can do so at RedCross.com.

Great post and information. Nissan America's is working with the American Red Cross and is donating $1,000,000 to the Japan Relief effort. They made a $500,000 cash donation up front and are matching the next $500,000 of donations through a site they have set up with the Red Cross. There is an article on how to donate so Nissan can match the donation at http://www.liftwrite.com/donate-japan-relief/ . My company has donated $1000 and I have personally donated. I encourage everyone to help in some way.

This s great news and Harley-Davidson should be congratulated for such a large donation when the market is in such bad shape. H-D does sell plenty of motorcycles in Japan and they get many of their parts from suppliers (including Honda) who are located there and have been directly impacted. Despite an outward image within the culture, H-D probably feels like a close friend has been in a terrible tragedy...and like Mr. Hardy mentioned above, I hope it leads to others doing the same.
