MoneyGram Raises Funds for Earthquake Victims

Minneapolis, Minn: At a fundraiser in Los Angeles recently, MoneyGram pledged its support for earthquake victims in Pakistan with a donation to the President’s Relief Fund. The fund, established by Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, was set up to aid the millions of people affected by the recent earthquakes in the region.
Zainab Ali, MoneyGram’s South Asia region marketing manager, presented the company’s pledge for $20,000 to Consul General Noor Mohammad Jadmani of Pakistan’s consulate in Los Angeles, during the fundraiser on Nov. 13 at the LAX Hilton. The consulate organized the event, which drew about 800 people.
“Our deep sympathy goes out to the many people who have suffered so much in this disaster,” said Ali, “and MoneyGram hopes this donation can be used to help them rebuild their lives.”
