Tim Cook Says Apple Will Donate to Help Rebuild Notre-Dame Cathedral After Devastating Fire

Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced that the company will donate towards Notre-Dame Cathedral rebuilding efforts following a devastating fire on April 15, 2019.

The fire broke out in the cathedral's roof causing the spire and roof to collapse. Considerable damage was done to the interior, upper walls, and windows of the church, as well as many works of art.

Earlier today Cook tweeted:

We are heartbroken for the French people and those around the world for whom Notre Dame is a symbol of hope. Relieved that everyone is safe. Apple will be donating to the rebuilding efforts to help restore Notre Dame’s precious heritage for future generations.

It's unclear how much Apple plans to donate. The rebuilding efforts have already generated huge donations including €200 million from LVMH owner and billionaire Bernard Arnault and his family, €200 million from the Bettencourt family, principal owners of L'Oréal, €100 from entrepreneur and billionaire François-Henri Pinault and his family's investment company Groupe Artémis, and €100 million from oil and gas company Total.

If Apple wants to get into rebuilding burned out Churches, I can think of at least 9 located right here in the United States that could use some attention... Oh wait... I forgot... They weren’t 800 years old and Catholic... They were Southern and Black... My mistake... carry on...

They want to be in history. Wonder why they didn’t donate before for a fire safety system/equipment for such a important building?!
