Tsunami Aid

I will say one good thing about some companies... they are matching employee donations. Though of course it's a tax write-off. Mak is absolutely right about the marketing thing (comment from "Give Me Ugly People" entry). Goodwill does a lot to raise one's PR on a positive level. Screw Ayn Rand and all her pegheaded followers. I do agree that charity does more harm when it's given unjustly or over-extended or manipulated, but sometimes fate and necessity call for us to do more than just watch and feel sorry. Call me a softy-sentimental pinko, but overall I believe that the great response by a great many people across the world to the tragedy in Southeast Asia confirms that humanity's heart is in the right place.
