Cantor Fitzgerald, the firm that lost over 600 employees in the WTC north tower on 9-11 has stepped up to the plate and are donating 100% of their commissions to the victims of Katrina in the upcoming period. They have been putting 25% of their money into a fund for their own families but are going to redirect this money and increase the percentage to all of it in order to assist with this disaster.
Incredible gesture by American companies. Goes hand in hand with the shipyards, factories and other big companies that have provided shelter and sustenance for their employees far beyond the call of requirements during this event.
Hats off to the corporate entities that lead by example in taking care of people.
