March 18th Is Ten Cent Listing Day for Earthquake/Tsunami Relief

It has been difficult for our Ruby Lane staff to watch the images of the massive Earthquake and Tsunami that has devastated Japan and its people. We fear for the safety of not only our shop owners and customers, but for all those in Japan.

For one of our staff members, this has been an especially trying few days. Ruby Lane's President and CEO, Tom Johnson, lived in Toyko for many years and has close ties to its people and culture.

How You Can Help: Ten Cent Listing Day Is March 18th
Ruby Lane will be hosting a Ten Cent Listing Day on Friday, March 18th. Much like our efforts to help those affected by the earthquake in Haiti and oil spill in the Gulf, we feel this is an easy way for shops to participate in assisting those most in need in Japan.

During this special effort, all items newly-listed on the site will only be charged 10 cents instead of the regular 30 cent Listing Fee. Ruby Lane will contribute 100% of the fees received to the Red Cross International Relief Fund.

This special listing day begins Friday, March 18, 2011 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time and ends at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. For all items added to your shop during this period, you will only be charged a 10 cent listing fee (5 cents for Charter Shops).

Your Ruby Lane account must have a positive balance of at least $1 to participate. Items listed on this day will be included in the count for regular maintenance charges if they are still listed in your shop on April 1st. We invite
all shops to take advantage of this promotion as we do our part to support the humanitarian efforts in Japan

Because we work in a global community, we at Ruby Lane try hard to be a good neighbor - not only in times of need, but everyday. Our Green Initiative works to reduce not only our carbon footprint, but that of our shop owners. And, when a community faces insurmountable trauma, we work to help them rebuild by pulling our Ruby Lane community of shops together.

We encourage you to help where you can.
