NEVER TOLERATE TYRANNY!....Conservative voices from the GRASSROOTS.
NO, they're WRONG!!
Just like with guns, it's NOT the GUN that kills, it the people pulling the trigger that KILL.
With Corporations, it's not Capitalism, it's not the economic system, it's not the business model that steal our money and corrupt the politicians, it's the CEO's and business managers that lie cheat and steal from We the People.
Of the many chants and slogans that have defined the frustrations of the past months’ Occupy Wall Street protests, one recurring theme has focused on the idea that greedy corporations do whatever they can to avoid sharing the wealth. But a look at the numbers tells more of a nuanced story.
The Chronicle of Philanthropy, a magazine that monitors the charitable giving industry, tracks donations from the largest corporations in the United States from the annual Fortune 500 list. The magazine’s 2011 Survey of Corporate Giving includes data on 2010 donations for 180 of those top companies.
To get down to the best of the best, MainStreet looks first at the five most generous corporations – those that gave more than 5% of their 2009 profits to charity in 2010. We then round up the five biggest donors – those corporations that gave the absolute most money to philanthropic causes last year. Read on to see if your favorite brand made the cut.
The Most Generous: Kroger
2010 Giving: $64,000,000
Percentage of 2009 Profits: 10.9%
Kroger, the largest grocery store chain in America, was the only corporation to give more that 10% of its previous year’s profits to charity in 2010. While its charitable giving efforts target the communities in which its stores operate through volunteering and donations, the Kroger Foundation supports national initiatives that go far beyond the company’s home base of Cincinnati.
At $64 million, the company’s significant giving in 2010 shows no signs of slowing down this year, as it has been an active participant in the Food 4 Less program to feed the hungry, and has also raised $1.5 million for military families and welcomed Salvation Army donation kettles into its stores this holiday season.
