The generousity of the American company sure does shine through in this story!
Remember Hurricane Katrina? Remember how much help all those people needed?
Obviously children realized how much help these hurricane victims were going to need, as they donated more than $10 MILLION dollars to relief funds by holding bake sales, making lemonade stands and holding car washes. Ten Million Dollars. Raised by kids.
However, American companies could not even donate that much. Not Chevron, not AT&T, not Verizon, not GE or Coca-Cola. These kids around the country were able to donate more money to these funds than these huge, multi-billion dollar corporations could.
Only 5…yes FIVE…companies gave more money than the kids did.
What the hell is wrong with this country when kids holding lemonade stands donate more money to the needy than major billion dollar companies?
Thank you to all the kids that donated their savings and their earnings from these projects…you deserve big kudos for all that you did.
