Cause Related Marketing: a Win-Win-Win? ()


As I mentioned in my last post, people are always striving for something, something big and long-term. Sometimes it is some sort of self-actualization or self-expression, sometimes it is a general notion of success, and sometimes it is a mark or difference in this big, wide world. In the case of making a difference, one way to do so is to contribute voluntarily to an organization that is making a difference.

In fact there’s an excellent post by Jeffrey Van Camp on Digital Trends that goes over the history and details of Google’s activities and what questions those activities bring up. I don’t want to go into that detail here, but I do have some questions:

Is it possible that Google is a protector of the Internet; the economy; the world’s humanity itself? Is the answer to that question different when you compare it to other American corporations, or other world-wide corporations? And does this even matter?
