Why isn't he running for prez?
Maybe he should be running for prez...
And maybe I shouldn't double post...
Nice gesture wish he did it privately!
Labrea, he did this purposely since he usually does gives quietly through the Bloomberg Fdn and before that the Carnegie Fdn. This was s statement to Komen and also a challenge to others.
I have lots of problems with Bloomberg but his generosity to many NYC based org's is legendary. He does put his money where his mouth is.
He has given city programs - that he cut - millions of dollars in the last 10 years. In particular, arts programs.
Indeed Elly. My former org receives between $150 - $250K from Bloomberg each year for their (arts) programs that serve under-served communities in NYC.
