As everyone starts emptying their pockets to help the disaster victims overseas, large companies are getting in on the act. Continental AG, manufacturer of tires and other automotive systems, is donating $500,000 to the effort. The company is still researching if some of this amount would be better served in goods like fuel tanks and tires for off-road vehicles. Either way good job Continental. And not to slight their contribution in any way but I heard on the radio this morning that actress Sandra Bullock gave $1 million to the Red Cross.
