Google "Google contributed $25000 to honor the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission while the company was under investigation by the agency for antitrust violations, Senate records show. Google donated the money to Common Sense Media, a San Francisco-based advocacy group that gave FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz an award for his work in developing policies to help children, according to a January disclosure report." I'm totally sure this is just a coincidence.

The moral of this story

So the moral of this story is for corporations should stop giving to charity.
I mean the more you give the higher the chance that you will give to an NGO that hosts some contest that gives prizes or supports something or someone you're involved in...

PS: Google contributed to an organization that honoured. Google isn't even the biggest contributor on the list, nor is one of few.
