To Commemorate Christmas, Google Donates Money to Fight Nazis on Your Behalf

Monday, December 21st, 2009

When our corporate overlords at Google aren’t getting busted for lacking shooting permits in national parks or getting ripped off buying $7000 toilets from Japan, they’re giving the world a gift for the holidays.

See how they’re commemorating the end of the aughts, the end of 2009?

“This gift is for someone very special: Everyone. Because charities are experiencing their toughest year in decades, we have committed $20 million to helping those who help us all. Our gift to you is a gift to them.”

Happy Holidays from Google
  
 Hello,
As we near the end of the year, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for the time, energy, commitment, and trust you’ve shared with us in 2009. With sharing in mind, this year we’ve decided to do something a little different. We hope you’ll find it fits the spirit of the holiday season. We’re looking forward to working with you to build lasting success in 2010.

Happy Holidays, Your Google Team
