Gifts Pouring In
from the good-news dept
Well, in all this mess, it’s good to see that people are stepping up all over the world. Within the tech world and around silicon valley, lots of money has been raised and donated. Cisco, for instance, donated $6 million. Microsoft has announced that they’re donating $5 million in cash, and $5 million in software and services at this point. If more is needed I wouldn’t be surprised to see these companies donate additional amounts. I am confused, however, as to how the $5 million of “software and services” will be all that helpful at this point. Update: Actually, the NY Red Cross is pleading for technology and services including some Microsoft licenses. There’s a list of what they need in that link. If you can help by donating anything, please look at the list.
