    It is sad that people only see what they want to see. Perhaps your glasses only give you tunnel vision. Any company that takes the effort to donate to a charity is taking a risk regardless. You will have people angry that Company A chose to donate to Charity B instead of Charity C. Let's open our eyes and not be so quick and naive to judge any generousity.
    The tragic events that happened September 11, 2001 has led the media to just promote more and more angst among the American people towards other ethnic groups yet you do not hear anyone of the "Newly" Patriotic Americans protesting about that.

    Shame Shame Shame.

    It is great to see partial benefit to a charitible organization, but the biggest shame is to have spammed this.

    Why is it that everyone seems to be capitalizing on 9/11?

    I did not recieve the e-mail listed on this site, I only learned of it here.
    While I find it appauling for my own reasons, let's face it.....there not the only ones doing this sort of thing.
    I have seen many of examples of folks trying to profit from this tradegy, now more than ever.
    From video documenteries at my video store to flags at wal-mart, seems everyone is trying to gain their piece of the pie from it.
    My question is, what makes this particular group any worse than others? If you truly want to stop people from profiting from 9-11 stop buying into what they are selling!

    I got one too at an address that used when I signed up for their newsletter. As I have registered neither a .us nor a .biz domain name I can't see how it could be relating to mining registry data.

    As Americans, we have several freedoms. Freedom of speech is one of them. Well, to me the BEST freedom is this: when I happen upon something or a situation that I am offended by, rather than making a big stink about it, I just WALK AWAY. This seems like sound advice for ALL.
