Do you remember the “famous elephant story” that broke couple of weeks ago? Well, probably yes, because it was very “hot” industry news. But did all the people that criticized Bob checked how much does he care of human beings and how much money does he give to all kinds of charities?
Check out this video “4 Days in Haiti. Absolutely unimagineable. Video from the trip” about GoDaddy’s support to Hope for Haiti, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the Haitian people through education, nutrition and healthcare.
But that’s not all. 2011 Total GoDaddy’s Donations through April 5th amounted to $3,566,250. Not bad, right? Full list of charities that GoDaddy supports. I guess that not many media (if any at all) will write about it. It is not a good story for media, killing elephant is.
Bob is a great person in my opinion. Would he be so successful if he was evil? I doubt it. Go Daddy, go Bob!
P.S I have all my global domains like .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info in GoDaddy. I have never had any problems with this registrar and .com renewals are really cheap: $7,95 + $0,18 ICANN fee with “cjc795dom” promo code – this is only 10 cents above the price that GoDaddy pays to VeriSign!
