March - April 2011
On March 11, 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of Japan. This triggered a tsunami with waves as high as 133 feet resulting in tens of thousands of deaths and injuries and hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes. After the disaster, Firstrade was there to help those in need get medical treatment, food, water and shelter.
We started our initiative by setting up a fund through the Red Cross and making a donation. Once word got out about our contribution, our amazing employees made it clear they wanted to take part and they began donating to the fund. In order to give our accountholders the opportunity to contribute, we also set up a link from our homepage to the Firstrade page on the Red Cross site.
Finally, we offered free wire transfers allowing our accountholders to send money to banks in Japan for a month at no charge. This ensured that every dollar sent went right to those who needed it most.
Right on Track
Relay for Life, Flushing NY | June 2010
The American Cancer Society held its annual Relay For Life event at the Bayside Athletic Field in Flushing, NY, for communities around the world to honor the lives of people who have fought hard against the destructive disease. Since 1985, Relay For Life has become an important yearly tradition wherein participants highlight the central theme - to celebrate the rebirth of the survivors, to remember the lives lost, and to fight back against cancer for a better future.
Firstrade Securities has maintained its own tradition of being a proud sponsor of the life-changing event for several years. In 2010, Firstrade was honored to be the major sponsor of Relay for Life. John Liu, CEO of Firstrade Securities, gave the keynote speech wherein he advocated the importance of prevention and treatment of cancer.
