    Coke donates 2.5 million to the Philippines

    I thought was nice a story to share. The Coke company has decided to suspen its ads in the Philippines and donate that budget of 2.5 mil to help with relief efforts.

    Good Job Coke.

    Coke Suspends Ad Campaign For Best Reason You Could Imagine

    Coca-Cola announced last week that the company is suspending its brand advertising in the Philippines so that it can donate its entire ad budget to typhoon relief efforts. The company has so far donated more than $2.5 million in cash and in-kind contributions.

    Coca-Cola is a heartless multinational corporation. Therefore, this story must be false.

    I know that corporations do lots of good stuff, even Coca-Cola - whose overseas policies are...let's give them the benefit of the doubt and say "suspect".

    And I'm against them receiving corporate welfare. Seriously, why do you need Washington to help you supply diabetic sugar-water around the world?

    Still - gotta pick on the left sometimes though. It's fun.

    Coke is a good company. I would buy some of their stock if I didn't think it was already over-valued.

    : The difference is when a corporation finds that there is money being wasted on anything, they immediately correct whatever is causing the waste...poor advertising campaign, overpriced suppliers of raw materials, excess personnel, citing some examples, while government often continues programs, for various reasons, that waste money . The difference is that business has to show a profit, whereas government does not. It even seems at times that government often throws more money at that already being wasted, hoping that might correct the problem. Strange thinking, which might explain our $17 trillioin debt!
