Mix-O-Matic for Charity: It's the Thought That Counts

Mix it up with Mix-O-Matic, a charity project of the Warner Music Group where every music mix you create and send to the company's website results in a donation to Habitat for Humanity in your name. You download the small, easy-to-use Mix-O-Matic application, and put together your own "Jingle Bell Rock" mix. It's tons-o-fun.

But casting a slightly cynical eye toward this project:


First of all the Warner Music Group doesn't mention how much money it donates to Habitat for Humanity for each mix you send. Plus, Habitat for Humanity International, a religious organization dedicated to eliminating poverty housing and homelessness and whose motto is "Building houses with God's people in need," has a two-star (out of a possible four) efficiency rating from the Charity Navigator, Your Guide to Intelligent Giving. And its CEO earns over $210,000 a year. Just thought you might want to know.
