  1. A drop in the bucket for this guy. plus he gets most of it back as a tax write-off.

    That said, good on him. Would be nice if all the other owners did the same. (I know that Gayle Benson already has, and maybe a few others)

  2. One million dollars is a lot of money & it’s great that the owners are helping with COVID-19 but let’s put things into perspective.
    Tepper’s net worth is $12 Billion – his donation is $1,000,000
    Let’s say for simplicity that the average American family has a net worth of $500,000 – the equivalent donation from the average family would therefor be $41.67.
    Extraordinary times call for extraordinary acts of humanity, kindness and compassion, I think the “HAVES” of the world can do a little better.
