It's great to see an article that recognizes and lauds the trend toward incorporating giving into spending. It is to be hoped that just such a combination of judicious criticism and generous praise will nudge more and more businesses into this practice, and continue to encourage consumers in this direction. Right now, the glass is half-full -- it can only be good that businesses see this as a bandwagon to be jumped on! With luck, it will become a common and automatic practice.

I just wanted to point out to others that Mary Ann was commenting on Michael Seltzer's post, directly below this one.
