Apple accepting Red Cross donations via iTunes to help Syrian refugee crisis

Apple Inc. has announced via its U.S. website a donation program that allows users to donate to the American Red Cross via Apple’s iTunes Store to support the Syrian refugee crisis.

The donation tiers available include $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 and $200.

100% of the proceeds from donations through the iTunes Store are sent to the American Red Cross. Because iTunes does not share your personal information with the American Red Cross, the Red Cross is unable to further acknowledge your donation.

MacDailyNews Take: To paraphrase Matthew 25:40:

Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto Me.

  1. Looks like spineless Obama drew a red line, spinelessly failed to act when it was crossed by Assad, signaling once again to the rest of the world, (Putin, Iran, etc.) that America was led by a weak man, and created this massive problem for Europe. Will the weak, unprepared Obama ever be held accoutnable? Of course not, not as “Amercia’s First Black President.” He will live in splendor for the rest of his life with the blood of millions on his hands.

    Experience matters. The U.S. Presidency is not a popularity contest. It is not a venue for “avenging past sins.” It is not something to toy with or entrust to unprepared neophytes. Remember that the next time you vote.

  2. Well, I’m sure Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE will max this thingy out in no time!!!!

    -wait, they won’t even accept refugees from Syria?
    And we are expected to help?
    WTF, it’s not like they are Palestinians…..

    1. I know, sister!

      First, two poster (children) hate on F14-T16, then we realize even Syria’s Muslim/Arab brothers do not give a rat’s ass for them (including their own Syrian government).

      So much hate….and guilt….but mostly hate.

      I do hope the money Apple raises goes to help fund a camp in Turkey, and not to move them here like Glen Beck wants. They should be MUCH closer to their homes so it will be easier to return after ISIS kills off all the infidels.

    1. You think “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto Me” is bullshit? It causes you to castigate MDN?

      That says everything we need to know about you. You are an ignorant asshole.
