I'm not quite sure why this upset you so, but they're doing much better than just donating to the Red Cross, they're donating directly to their employees, who, by the way do not live in the hotel, proper, and many of whom have lost relatives and friends in this ordeal, not to mention the significantly less substantial loss of their own homes, which can be replaced. Although the folk interviewed there may sound flippant, they aren't the fat cats lavishing in ideal circumstances you seem to think they are. They're hotel employees.


Yeah, they sound flippant indeed. I read the story -- I know they're hotel employees. The donation page you link to wasn't live until today. I assume it's in part due to the reaction from the story, and that's the appropriate (if belated) action on the hotel's part.
