Team,

For the past week, our thoughts have been with those affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. And Apple employees and customers the world over have raised millions of dollars toward the relief effort so far. But we can always do more.

That's why, on behalf of all our employees, Apple is making a donation of $2.5 million to the American Red Cross to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief. We hope this contribution will help families, businesses, and communities recover and rebuild.

Only AFTER Apple's employees and customers donate, did Apple donate.

Not much of a leader are they?

Then someway somehow. The money never makes it to the people. It eventually gets fraudently all sucked up. Thanks for the help. Long Island is still a dump. Just level it. Give the land back to the Indians.

Agree.. Half the money likely end up in Red Cross' president pocket, and the other get "lost" in fees
