Delta’s Managing Director of Community Engagement, Tad Hutcheson explained that the airline rallied support from its customers and the public in a bid to help the earthquake victims through a link on its website.
He urged people living outside of the United States but hoping to donate towards this worthy cause to do so via the website.

The American Red Cross and Delta have a long-standing partnership dating as far back as 1941.
