Google (Nasdaq:GOOG) Donates to San Bruno Cause

With the explosion of the Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (NYSE:PCG) natural gas line in San Bruno, California not even able to be evaluated yet, Google (Nasdaq:GOOG) has stepped up to the plate and donated what the company identified as an "initial amount" of $50,000 to the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter.

San Bruno, where the explosion occured, is about 8 miles south of San Francisco, while the offices of YouTube, which Google owns, are only about two miles from the center of the gas explosion.

Google is especially focused on encouraging blood donations. Laszlo Bock, Vice President of People Operations for Google, said, "We're directing Googlers to the local blood drives today (Friday) and will be hosting blood drives in our San Bruno, Mountain View and San Francisco offices early next week."

According to Google's website, no one from the company had been injured in the explosion.

Good covered point, lots of people simply put something weired theories in front of public.
But it doesn’t work i think because know one sure how it will going to happen
It looks like just coping ideas which someone has already written. I found even on
popular blogs guest bloggers bring same theories which I already know. I observed they
just try to spice up their article without knowing what really audience want to read.
