From AppleInsider’s “Apple to support winter storm relief efforts in Texas, other US states” posted early Thursday:
CEO Tim Cook announced the planned donation in a post to Twitter on Thursday. He failed to offer specifics, though the company typically provides between $1 million to $2 million in disaster aid, depending on the severity of the event.
“Our hearts are with everyone across Texas and around the U.S., including many of our team members, as they endure the impact of the harsh winter storms,” Cook said in a tweet. “Apple will be making a financial contribution to local, community-based organizations to support their relief efforts.”
My take: Unlike what’s his name, Tim Cook cares. He also puts some of Apple’s free cash where his heart is. From AppleInsider:
In 2018 the company donated $1 million to victims of the Kerala floods in India, relief efforts following the Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia, and Red Cross activity after the California wild fires and Hurricane Florence. Contributions in 2019 included millions in aid for the California wild fires and Australian brush fires, while 2020 saw the tech giant donate to various coronavirus-related efforts, a project that involved the distribution of millions of masks to healthcare workers.
