Rewards help Japan

To the Editor:
Like many people I have been wishing to help the victims in Japan in some way.
My days of being able to go out with a Red Cross Disaster Team are now limited by age and health issues.
Also, since retirement I am on a very modest fixed income.  But an e-mail from a corporation I have a “rewards” system with has come to my rescue.  Hilton Corporation sent me information on how I can donate some of the points I have earned with their HHonors program.
Not only can I donate, but they are going to match my donation dollar for dollar.  I do not know how many other such point accumulating programs are sponsoring a similar opportunity, but I urge each of you who belong to any “reward” system to explore and see if you have such an option.
