Another reason not to shop at Wal-Mart

I was reading a financial magazine today and it listed the top 50 philanthropists in the country. Number one on the list is someone that a lot of people give a hard time. There are a lot of people that don't like Bill Gates, but he has given $27 Billion dollars to charities so far. That is 53% of his net worth.

Number 10 on the list of givers was the Wal-Mart Family. They have given only $1 Billion dollars to charities. That is 1% of their Net Worth. Now, every time you shop at Wal-Mart, you are making them richer and richer. They seem to be wanting to keep all that money you donate to their huge fortune. The Wal-Mart Family's Total Net Worth is $98 Billion. That's almost twice what Bill Gates is worth.

Stop Making Them Richer!

And it's all inheritance. These aren't even the people who started the company; they have become billionaires for doing nothing. Don't shop at Wal-Mart, it's worth it to pay an extra $.05 per item at Target in order to avoid the white trash ladies arm cellulite.
