Cash for earthquake victims grows

Taiwanese PC and components giant, Acer, is to donate US$625,000 to the relief fund set up in the wake of the earthquake which devastated the island last week. While Acer anticipates it will be back in full production this week, it is looking for employees to dig deep to help boost disaster relief funds. In a statement issued today, Stan Shih, Chairman and CEO of Acer said: "The earthquake caused extensive damage and trauma to those who have lost their homes and families. "Acer extends its deepest sympathies and shares the victims' sorrow for this terrible tragedy. We are pleased to contribute $625,000 towards the rescue and recovery operations." ®
