Audi shows that it is a company with rings of love and compassion. The German carmaker and its workforce will donate one million euros for victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The money will be made available to charities aiding in the humanitarian relief effort. The donation is part of a joint initiative by the Volkswagen Group.

“we are still very concerned, given the dire consequences of the severe earthquake and tsunami”, said Thomas Sigi, Chief of Human Resources of Audi AG. “The situation in which the people of Japan find themselves can barely be described in words. Therefore, we want to show a clear sign of solidarity with the Japanese people.” Audi’s Works Council Chairman Peter Mosch announced a fundraising campaign by the workers as well, “In view of this incredible disaster, the sense of concern by our colleagues for the people of Japan is very high. In this difficult time we want to help those affected and are therefore working together with the Works Council of Volkswagen in an effort to support the cause.”

The money will be used toward rescue and relief efforts in the northeast of Japan. The funds will be available to charities working in that field.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
