Google Starts Up Philanthropy Campaign


Washington Post reports (also see google.org):

Google Inc. is launching an unusual corporate philanthropy campaign that will focus on fighting poverty and disease in Africa, addressing energy and environmental issues, and assisting nonprofit groups by giving away free online advertising.

Not that I am against it but given that Google is now a public company, I wonder how Google is going to justify doing this to their shareholders. Three Cheers to Google nevertheless.
