Polygon Helps Industry Raise Funds for Disaster Relief
Polygon.net, the online jewelry industry network, has set up a system for industry members to donate money to help disaster relief efforts and victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.
By visiting www.polygon.net and clicking on the large flag image, people can donate funds to the American Red Cross, the September 11th Fund, the Twin Towers Fund and the Salvation Army. Contributions of $5 and above are accepted. In addition, Lazare Kaplan is setting up a fund in memory of Bob Speisman, who died in the Pentagon plane crash. People will be able to contribute to that fund on Polygon.net once it's set up. Additionally, you don't need to be a Polygon member to access the page or contribute.
