The wealthy often do what they can to make non-profit organizations look like capitalists as justification for not donating a penny – and they try to convince other people who already don’t donate to also never donate.
is that it’s just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Musk will keep ALL of his money but meanwhile it becomes a good excuse for the organization to bring up their accounting transparency — which is NOTHING NEW — they did not invent this just for Musk. They have been doing this for decades and decades to OTHER donors that existed before Musk was even born.
So hopefully this will help them make up their shortfall in donations. The people Musk convinces not to donate never WERE going to donate anyway and those that would donate, will. It becomes publicity for everybody and Musk got to mention Tesla stock, which at every mention he makes, makes it more valuable which makes him make more. So it’s win-win-win in the end.
