As the aftermath of Japan’s recent devastating tsunami and earthquake continues, donations are still pouring in to help rebuild this desperate country – and with aid organisations setting up in their thousands, LVMH is the latest do-gooders to dip deep.
Luxury conglomerate Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton have reportedly donated £3.75 million to Japan’s earthquake relief fund, reports LDNfashion – an extremely generous act, we think you’ll agree, and one which will undoubtedly make a huge difference to the lives of many heartbroken citizens.
Japan accounts for nine per cent of the group’s annual turnover, and at a recent shareholder’s meeting LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault was confident the people of Japan would pull through this horrific natural disaster.
“I am confident in the strength of the Japanese people: Their tenacity and their ability to face very difficult situations will help them to emerge very quickly from this terrible crisis,” said Arnault.
