Hard Rock joins Japan relief drive

SAIPAN’S Hard Rock Café  has placed a donation box on its counter to help raise funds for the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.
Hard Rock Café Saipan operations manager Rey Perez said he will seek the support of residents until the end of the month.
“We are knocking on the doors of our fellowmen to help the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Your contributions, no matter how little, will go a long way in helping them rebuild their lives,” Perez said.
At the end of the month, Perez said Hard Rock Café will turn over the donations to the local Red Cross.
“As of now, we only accept monetary donations,” he said.
Hard Rock Café Saipan is  one of the branches around the world that have joined “ALL IS ONE — Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Movement.”
Hard Rock International has launched several initiatives in conjunction with the Red Cross to support relief efforts in  Japan.
Among the initiatives Hard Rock is conducting is the global “CRANK IT UP” Program which encourages diners and customers to round off their bills to the nearest dollar amount so the remainder will be donated to help the relief efforts in Japan.
Each Hard Rock Café outlet is also conducting a donation box drive and proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.
Hard Rock Café will also tap various resources, including social media such as Facebook and Twitter, to deliver messages to supporters on how they can donate.
You can help by dropping your donations at the Hard Rock Café donation box in Garapan. For more information, call 233-7625.
