Thanks to the generosity of Notaries across the nation, the National Notary Foundation this month provided a substantial donation to the Salvation Army to support ongoing relief efforts for Japanese earthquake and tsunami survivors. National Notary Association CEO Marc Reiser presented the relief funds directly to Major Steven Bradley of the Salvation Army’s Southern California Division “The Salvation Army thanks Notaries, and the National Notary Foundation, for their generosity to help fund our important relief efforts in Japan,” Major Bradley said. Following the devastating natural disaster that struck Japan in March, the National Notary Foundation urged the Notary community to donate to its “Notaries For Japan,” relief fund, and many answered the call. Your generous donations will help the Salvation Army deliver much needed supplies to needy families including food, bottled water, tents, clothing and bicycles — which are needed to travel through devastated areas, Bradley said. When you donate through the National Notary Foundation, 100 percent of your contribution goes directly to the philanthropic campaign or relief effort you choose, as all administrative costs are donated by the National Notary Association.
