You are the reason why people would rather amass incredible wealth than give a small portion of their earning to charity.
Sure, it may be a small figure for such a big company but I don't see you donating gaming consoles to soldiers and their families. At the end of the day, whether its a PR stunt or not (ofc its for pr), at least they gave something back. People seem to forget that companies like MS are under absolutely no obligation to donate anything. They could have quite easily sold those units at retail for $200 a pop. But at least they donated something, which is far more than most other companies or even people in society do.
i doubt he is saying its not a nice gesture, just the intentions are probably not so nice.
if i was a multi billionaire celebrity and i gave a dollar to a homeless man, but i had my entire paparazzi entourage cover it, would i still be respectable? See, people seem to forget rich people like me are under absolutely no obligation to donate anything. so for me to donate one dollar is far more than most other companies or even people in society do. I am a multi billionaire, and under no obligation whatsoever, gave a dollar to a homeless man and it just so happens since all the cameras covered it, i got my one dollar back and more in free advertising.
and for someone to even question my intentions is ridiculous. Its obvious i did this out of the kindness of my heart and the free PR was just an unforeseen effect. Because someone called me out on this, because they question my obliviously genuine motives, they proved they are whats wrong with this worldEdited by mnkeyprince - 12/13/11 at 3:00am
