In addition to a direct contribution from the firm to the Japan America Society of Chicago, all who work at Segal McCambridge have the opportunity to contribute to the relief effort currently underway in Japan.
"Jeans Day" is a tradition in the firm's Chicago office. Every Friday, for a minimum contribution of $5, Segal McCambridge personnel may wear jeans to work. The money goes straight to charity, funneling thousands of dollars each year to a wide range of worthy causes.
This week, all of the firm's seven offices will observe this tradition, with the money going to the relief efforts coordinated by the Japan America Society of Chicago. The JASC, which has worked for more than 80 years to foster understanding and cooperation between the people of the U.S. and Japan, will work in close coordination with the Japanese Consulate General of Chicago to see that relief funds get to those most in need.
In addition, for the next seven weeks, the New York and Chicago offices will send Jeans Day contributions to the Red Cross.
The recent tragedy and ongoing crisis in Japan have touched us all. The thoughts, hopes and prayers of everyone at Segal McCambridge are with Japan and her people.
