Kudos to Boeing. I think it shows how far Boeing has come. You've got to admit, Boeing has been bad to crash victims in the past, but this shows that they aren't monsters and even though they're not directly responsible, they feel a lot of pain.

Here is the very short article:
Boeing and its Employees Contribute to Disaster Relief Efforts
CHICAGO, Sept. 14, 2001 - The Boeing Company and its employees have committed more than $5 million to the humanitarian efforts involved in the aftermath of Tuesday's terrorist attacks on the United States.
The employee leaders of the company's Employees Community Funds have voted to approve approximately $1 million to relief agencies. In addition, these employee-managed community funds have begun a campaign among Boeing's 199,000 employees that will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the company. Boeing's corporate contribution will be divided evenly between the Red Cross and the United Way September 11 Fund.

Many major companies, which had to do with this crash - most of them had their offices at the WTC - are also donating. CS First Boston, for example, announced already yesterday, that they will donate 1 Mio US$ plus what employees donate.
I find it great.

Some peple have such a negative attitude! Not enough, bragging, c'mon. They give a reasonable amount. They can't just donate half of their worth, can they? Also, they're required to disclose all their spending to the investing public, hence the announcement.
