Ria Announces Online Fee Free Relief And Red Cross Donation Collection

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ria Money Transfer, a division of Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (Nasdaq:EEFT), and a leading global money transfer provider, today announced efforts to support typhoon relief in the Philippines. Still reeling from the effects of a 7.1 magnitude earthquake last month, the island nation is now dealing with the aftermath of one of the strongest typhoons on record.

For the rest of November, all online money transfers at riamoneytransfer.com to the Philippines will be fee free to allow US-based customers the opportunity to quickly and easily send emergency funds to the Philippines.

In addition, the company is collecting donations on behalf of the Red Cross to allow anyone to send money directly in support of typhoon relief. Donations will also be fee free and can be sent from any Ria location in the US or Canada or online at riamoneytransfer.com. Instructions for sending online donations can be found at www.facebook.com/RiaFinancialServices .

"Our hearts go out to the families who are faced with the catastrophic consequences of Typhoon Haiyan," said Juan Bianchi, President and CEO of Ria Money Transfer. "While we can't reverse the devastating effects of the typhoon, we can help the people of the Philippines by waiving the fees and providing a world class and fast means of transferring funds home."
