Apple has been taking a lot of heat lately for failing to effectively pursue safer working conditions in its overseas manufacturing plants, but also for outsourcing its product assembly to China – because you know, they’re the only company outsourcing to China…
If there is one thing the company is doing well these days, it’s their charity donation program, which was initiated by Tim Cook as he became CEO of Apple last year.
The Verge reports:
According to our sources, Cook said that Apple has donated a total of $50 million to Stanford’s hospitals, split into $25 million for a new main building and $25 million for a new children’s hospital. Cook also spent quite a bit of time talking about Apple’s status as the leading contributor to Project RED, and expressed pride that Apple’s given over $50 million to the effort since it started.
See, Apple is not so evil after all.
