Fort Worth, Texas, May 13, 2011 – In a desire to help in the effort to provide support to those still battling the effects of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan in March, TTI, Inc. launched a fundraising campaign to support the relief effort. Partnering with the American Red Cross, TTI employees from around the globe, including its subsidiary Mouser Electronics, initiated a fundraising campaign in April.
The goal established for the campaign was met and through a matching contribution from the company, TTI was able to double the donation amount given to the American Red Cross.
Paul Andrews, TTI’s CEO, said, “We are extremely pleased with the outcome of this fundraising effort and I especially want to thank all the employees that contributed to the success of the campaign. Monies raised will go a long way in helping those in need to begin rebuilding their lives.”
