Compare and Contrast

With the donations pouring in for tsunami relief, there have been some fairly sizable personal donations from people with the wealth to afford it.
  • Michael Schumacher donated US$10 million
  • US$1.5 million from Steven Spielberg
  • US$1 million from Sandra Bullock
  • US$1 million from Leonardo di Caprio
Then there are some donations where you think they aren't really putting enough effort...
  • George W Bush bonated US$13,000, from a personal wealth of US$17 million
  • Qantas offered $1 million from a profit of $1 billion
  • Commonwealth Bank initially offered $250,000, but have since lifted it to $1 million, considering they just announced a profit of $2.6 billion
