Shameful.

I find it shameful that the multi-billion dollar company Wal-Mart is only giving one million dollars to the relief effort of Hurricane Katrina.

That kind of pennypinching isn't a donation, it's simply a small tax write-off for them. It's shameful.

With some many people losing everything, and so many others sacrificing their lives to help rescue people, Wal-Mart sits back and feels good about itself for their chump-change donation that we're supposed to accept as "generosity"?

I call you out, Wal-Mart. Up your donation to something true. And I, as well, will figure out how to make a sacrificial donation of my own.

UPDATE: That's more like it!

"Following PresidentBush's announcement today that former Presidents Bush and Clinton will lead anationwide fundraising effort to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, Wal-Mart President and CEO Lee Scott contacted President Clinton and the WhiteHouse and committed $15 million from Wal-Mart to jump-start the effort."

Way to go, Wal-Mart, way to go. They may have looted your store. But you came through.
