Witnessing media reports of the tsunami’s devastation and despair, many
BWH employees have been asking “What can we do to help?” That question
prompted an employee-driven effort to collect cash donations for the American
Red Cross relief efforts.
The effort was organized by Wendy Martinez, executive assistant, Administration.
“I read about various civic groups joining together to raise money for the
tsunami survivors, and I thought the idea would translate well at BWH,”
Martinez said that the magnitude of the disaster continues to overwhelm her
and those she interacts with. “This is just an awful set of circumstances
for the victims. Our efforts this week provide a small way for employees to feel
like they have helped.”
BWH has dedicated a page on Pike Notes to the tsunami relief efforts. Visit
