Apple donates $2.5 million to Hurricane Sandy relief

Tue, Nov 13, 2012


In the wake of the Hurricane that ravaged parts of New York and left millions of individuals without electricity for days on end, Apple has stepped up to the plate and donated $2.5 million to the Red Cross in an effort to help out with the relief efforts.

The email below was sent from Apple CEO Tim Cook (and obtained by 9to5Mac) to Apple employees late last week.

Apple is of course no stranger to helping those in dire needs and has in the past routinely set up donation pages via iTunes to help out disaster victims worldwide. Now, it’s nice to see that Apple, under Cook’s direction, is taking an even more active role in its charitable giving.
