Asian Tsunami George W. Bush

Some perspective on Bush's $10,000

Bush's annual income: $1.6 million
Amount donated to relief effort: $10,000
Percentage of annual income donated: .6%

If you're earning, for example, $30,000 per year and you donated $180, you donated .6% of your salary. $10,000 for George W. Bush is the same as $180 to you.
