Silicon Valley Donates Lots Of Money

from the silicon-valley-grows-up dept

Following the annoying news (posted below this story) of scammers trying to take advantage of people, here’s a better story about how Silicon Valley firms have stepped up to donate lots of money in the wake of the tragedy. For years people have been claiming that techies and Silicon Valley firms didn’t care about helping others or charity – so, this is a good sign. Though, who knows how many will continue to be involved in charitable giving. Of course, many of the companies who did give are already fairly active in charitable giving – but those aspects of their business were rarely talked about.
