Donate the Bonuses to New Orleans! Lets start a movement!

I have a solution for the "bonus" problem at AIG and other similar companies.  Instead of dealing with all the BAD publicity, why not donate the funds to organizations that are rebuilding New Orleans homes?  They could donate to construction groups, to groups that house volunteers, or to groups that feed people.

If the AIG bonuses were donated - $165 million -  that would go a long way to help Louisiana real estate!  It would also help turn the bad publicity into GOOD publicity!  Who would argue with helping to rebuild the Katrina areas.  (3 of my daughters have been down there to help rebuild.)

So if you are reading this, consider flagging it as notable.  Consider writing your own blog on this topic.  Tell your local newspaper (if it still exists).  Twitt er it.  Call the people who read the TV teleprompters on the evening "news".  Get the word out!  We can make a difference! 

Happy listing and selling!

Interesting idea. I think there are a lot of good organizations that AIG should donate to instead of lining the pockets of those partially responsible for AIG's bailout.

We should donate the money to help start the cause that is in place to have a resource based economy rather than a monetary one.  This will alleviate all money problems.  Every single issue people talk about is money.  If we lived in a resoruce based economy, imagine the happiness.

Heath, That didn't help my writers block but it makes me want to get a job with a company that rewards failure. When I worked in corporate America, I got bonuses because the company was doing well and we achieved our goals. Now if your goals were to be bailed out by the government, you deserve a bonus. I think rebuilding New Orleans is a waste of money. It sits below sea level in an area that gets hit with tropical storms every year. Move it, Yes, Rebuild it, NO!

Thanx for the comments.  Tony - resource based is an alternative to some things.  But the system in place has a lot of tentacles that will be hard to weed out.

Paul - sorry it didn't help you block.  However, New Orleans is being rebuilt.
