    Bystander, looking at it the way you state it I understand and it do make a lot of sense. It would hopefully cause more companies to get on board. I guess their are two different ways to look at it. It still would be nice however to sometimes show the average person donating.

    Its great for employees of Johnson's to help with the food bank donations but I fail to understand the publicity. When widow Jones or Frank on a fixed income put what they cannot really afford into a food bank where is their promotion? I believe many people who look for no credit are filling hampers and VOCM's happy tree all the time. I believe truely giving is giving without promotion.

    This was the average person donating, all employees from bottom to top were apart of this food drive. Keep in mind that if the company did not advertise this as much as they did the results would never have been so dramatic.

    Just so you know it is not the company that makes the donation setting up the promotion it is usually the organization receiving it or the news outlet asking the organization if they have anything happening right now that they could cover as a story. This is done to raise awareness to others that one company and its employees can raise so much to help so many. In return they are hoping that other companies join in and do the same. It is in no way meant to discourage what every individual contribute regardless of their income level. It is done so hopefully other companies will jump on board and do the same which will provide much more food in a shorter span then if it were all done individually.
