San Diego Is My Home and several other sites are reporting that Apple is spreading a little seasonal cheer to kids who were victims in the recent San Diego area wild fires.
Jobs and Co. are handing out iPods to high school students who lost their homes and belongings thanks to local resident Steve Boyack. When Steve noticed that the high school kids were getting left out of the local toy drives and fund raisers he called Apple to see if they could help, and they responded with iPod Nanos for the victims.
Sometimes we give Apple grief for the price of some items, or the “corporate” decisions they make – but this is an example of what makes the company different from others. While yes, it certainly is good PR, not every company would be so generous. I’m glad to see that Apple is.
