As of Wednesday morning, the death toll had climbed to over 1,400 people, with an additional 70,000 displaced from homes, and thousands more injured.

Here are 3 things companies are doing about it this charitable season.
Last year, we saw seismic shifts in the causes people supported as we also crossed the $400 billion giving mark for the first time. We saw more people and companies give more than ever before, which is heartening in what has felt like a time of tension, crisis and unprecedented natural and “man-made” disasters.
