IMO if Walmart donated $1 of every sale they made, it'd be less of an impact to the donor.

Instead of dividend checks, they could mail out charitable receipts to the shareholders.

Gubment would never stand for that. Lol

An off duty officer at the store nodded solemnly and let me leave without paying for my purchases. I will gladly take half the sum I just saved and donate it to the charity of MY choice on MY terms.


Which Wal-Mart that makes a difference because umbrella selction is probably different.

Can't say I've ever been asked twice to donate. Can't say I've ever given it a second thought until I saw this thread.

At least they'd get a tax break of some sort. Still less than their dividend checks though

Probably wouldn't get a tax break because they probably wouldn't invest in it..

Just wait until the NSA reads this. They'll alert their army of crippled children and you'll get a crutch through your neck outside of any Wal-Mart you dare go to.
