70,000 Rupees Donated to The Indian Red Cross Society
In March 2013, our office in India was able to hand over a donation of 70,000 rupees to the Indian Red Cross Society to celebrate the charities 150th anniversary. The money was raised partly through the sales of performance kits at the Electronics For You Expo 2013 earlier in the year. This was more than doubled with the donation of additional funds from Toradex, raising the total to the 70,000 rupees.
