retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Walmart and the Walmart Foundation announced this week that "over the last fiscal year they gave more than $1 billion in cash and in-kind contributions, making it the first time Walmart or any U.S. retailer has achieved that level of giving. The growth in global giving was largely due to increased in-kind donations in the U.S. to local food banks and families impacted by disasters."
KC's View:
I was going to make a joke here about how one of the reasons Walmart had this much money to contribute was that so much more was available once the bribery fund was shut down.

But I decided that would be mean. And the fact is, this kind of altruism is a good thing, and people and companies that make such contributions deserve better than to have some moron like me making fun of them for doing so.

I'll find another reason to poke a little fun at them. Tomorrow.
