TORONTO, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - National Money Mart announced today the launch of a major fundraising campaign to assist victims in Haiti suffering from the effects of last week's devastating earthquake.
Money Mart locations are now accepting contributions from the public at all of its 460 locations across Canada. All donations (combined with funds raised in the U.S.) will be matched by Money Mart's parent company - Dollar Financial Group - up to US$50,000.

Every donation Money Mart receives in Canada in excess of $10 will be eligible for a tax receipt issued by the Canadian Red Cross.
