While the most of the Muslim world silently waits for a miracle to solve the refugee crisis by itself, companies in the West are already playing their part, the latest ones being Apple and Google.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced that the company will be making a “substantial donation” to organizations working for the welfare of people facing this calamity.
He has been quoted as saying in an internal email found by BuzzFeed and The Telegraph.
“Thousands of people have already lost their lives as families embark on long and dangerous journeys across land and sea. Our hearts go out to these refugees, and many of you have asked how we can help. Apple is making a substantial donation to relief agencies which provide humanitarian aid to refugees in Europe and around the Mediterranean.”
Apple already has a few side-projects such as the Red for quite some time now and this is another good step in the right direction.
Meanwhile, Google which had already announced support of 1 million Euros earlier this month has raised more than $11.3 million as of latest to solve the refugee crisis.
More importantly, it has created a fake website at betagoogle.com called Google Fortunetelling which rallies support from every pre-determined search query. There can’t possibly be a better way to gain attention than this gimmick for a giant like Google.
