Foster's Group Limited, which includes Beringer Blass Wine Estates and Foster's Brewing International, has donated A$1m (US$762,410) to the Tsunami Appeal.

The cash donation has been given to five key aid agencies: Oxfam Community Aid Abroad, UNICEF, Red Cross, CARE and World Vision. The money is already being used to provide necessities such as clean water, healthcare and shelter for survivors.  The agencies requested cash above all other donations at this stage due to difficulties of getting aid to affected areas.

In addition to the cash donation, Foster's is continuing to run fund-raising initiatives and to increase awareness for the appeal.

Foster's employees are also making independent contributions. Collection tins have been sent out to various sites encouraging donations and many of the tins are being placed in the on-site bars encouraging staff to make a 'first drink for charity' donation.

Foster's Disaster Relief project manager, Scott Delzoppo, said: "It's very humbling to see the number of Foster's people around the globe who have volunteered their time and money to help those affected by this great tragedy. The effort to rebuild many communities will take a long time and Foster's is looking at a number of other options to assist into the future."
