this is impressive
i hear a giant lock being used
Not be too dismissive, but for an "elite" group of people, the average donation for an estimate of 350 people is unspectacular. (For example, the event itself more than likely cost at least 1/10 of what was raised for charity.) That said, it is better than nothing, particularly for a Super Bowl party.
whats the charity for?
yeah i wish they'd never even bothered, the selfish bastids.
although it does make the £2 i give to CAFOD every couple of years seem a bit meager, they are richer than me - it's their responsibility to give loads of money to charity. giving money to charity only counts if you give more than you can comfortably afford to, otherwise it's pointless.
No, that's just sad. This was an elaborate Super Bowl party that was designed as a tax write-off.
That's about an average of $575 a piece. Coming from the following individuals (just to name a few),
Adam Sandler (Grown Ups)
Adam Goodman (President, Paramount Pictures)
Chris Rock (Grown Ups)
David Spade (Grown Ups)
David Robb (CEO, Utopia)
Ed Razek (CEO, Victoria’s Secret)
Ken Brenner (CEO, LegacyDirect)
Jim Palotta (co-owner,Boston Celtics)
Michael Bay (Director)
Rita LeBlanc (New Orleans Saints, VP, Owner)
Ryan Steelberg (CEO, BAT)
Rob Moore (Chairman, Paramount Pictures)
It would've been more impressive if they had raised $2,000,000 because $200,000 is a sum us "normal" folks raise.
I'm willing to bet the benefit cost more to host than the total donations.
200,000 dollars from just those people? That's not a lot, really. They could have given MORE than that. I can safely bet that it cost more than 200,000 dollars to just host the party.
That'd be like me giving £1 to a charity and feeling very very pleased about it.
Sure it's nice to give, but considering the cash these people must have it just seems - I dunno - a bit cheap.
Still, as an 'I'm doing charity' publicity investment for these people it's probably a good deal price.
Considering that Bay earned about 125 million dollars last year, 200.000 is change just for him, let alone all the other people attending. It's a fucking shame.
Go for it dood.
hoo-ray for typos!
Anything is better than nothing, but yeah 200,000 grand for those dudes is pretty weak.
Nothing wrong if it were done more secretly, but now their super plan on showing the world they cared backfired, and made them look like cheap bastods.
thanks to the mod that moved my post
So no, I'm not impressed that people who earn millions raised $200,000. Bay could have done better than that by donating his pocket change.
