Harley Donates $250,000 to Japan Relief Effort

harley_davidson_logoHarley-Davidson hasn’t been impacted by the Japan earthquake nearly as much as motorcycle manufacturers like Honda and Kawasaki, but the Harley-Davidson Foundation is still stepping up to help the Japanese relief effort. The Harley-Davidson Foundation announced today that it was making a $250,000 donation to Japan.

Harley’s donation will go to the Red Cross and will help the overall disaster relief efforts in Japan.

“Our hearts go out to all the people in Japan who have been impacted by these tragic events,” said Foundation President Gail Lione. “It is important to all of us at Harley-Davidson to support the relief efforts and help the country through this devastating time.”

Harley-Davidson’s Japan subsidiary has also set up a relief fund. The Japan subsidiary has been sending food, water, and supplies to disaster areas.
