Coty donates funds to benefit Japan earthquake relief

NEW YORK — Coty recently donated $100,000 to two humanitarian organizations involved in the earthquake relief efforts in Japan, the beauty company announced on Wednesday.

The company is donating $50,000 to the American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization working closely with the Japanese Red Cross and other partners to provide immediate relief to those affected in Japan. Coty also is contributing $50,000 to Save the Children, an international organization working in Japan since 1986, which has local volunteers and trained staff members responding to the immediate needs of children and their families.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the thousands of people suffering in the aftermath of the massive earthquake and tsunami, which devastated northeastern Japan," Coty CEO Bernd Beetz said. "Coty's 10,000 employees worldwide are supporting numerous Japanese relief efforts around the globe, in addition to our corporate donation to the American Red Cross and Save the Children."
