Not the First Humanitarian Effort in Haiti

Last night when I heard the news of the Haitian earthquake and its incredible devastation I knew from experience that FedEx team members would respond immediately to help those in need. In 2006 I was honored to receive the FedEx Humanitarian Award as part of our effort to help this small country recover from another natural disaster. A year earlier Hurricane Katrina cut a destructive path through Haiti. A group of FedEx Express employees in Minnesota and South Dakota stepped up to deliver the Purple Promise to the Bon Samaritan Hospital in Cazeau, Haiti.
