SHAME ON HOME DEPOT
OK; BUTTT, GMAFB. 10 grand to 10 different families???
It should have been at least 100 grand to 1,000 families. By Home Depot making this minimal/embarrassing donation all for show and a publicity stunt, as well as a tax deduction, is only demonstrating what cheap-skates they are.
Home Depot: global net sales 2007-2020 In 2020, Home Depot reached 132.1 billion U.S. dollars in net sales worldwide, up from 110.2 billion recorded a year earlier. This represents an increase of approximately 20 percent in comparison to 2019 figures. Nov 2, 2021
Their sales reached $133 billion and shamefully, they dug very deep into their coffers and donated 100 grand split between 10 deserving people. GMAFB. It is almost insulting; on second thought it is insulting.
I don’t know if they donate to other charities; I’m sure they probably do. but this particular donation it’s about as minimal as one can get. So minimal I would be embarrassed to advertise it.
The numbers are too complicated to calculate. 7.518796992481203e-7: To put it plain and simple and in terms a layman can understand; this articular donation can be compared to one bit of spit in the ocean or one grain of sand and all the beaches in the USA. I don’t care how you cut it folks; that is almost a million times less than zero.
If Home Depot is not ashamed of themselves they should be. If they had any class in their organization at all , they would have not come off as big so Scrooge like.
So was it a generous gesture by Home Depot?? I guess it is depending on who you talk to. But based on what they are worth, I would expect them to donate a hell of a lot more to this worthy cause.
What is the old cliche?? Never kick a gift horse in the nuts. A few crumbs are better than none of the loaf.
