6352: I Have A Promotional Message.
A handful of advertisers commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. When you buy a Home Depot gift card, the retailer will make a donation toward building a home for Dr. King’s papers.
Delta Airlines flies the same ad it presented last year, hyping its donations toward building a memorial for Dr. King (how damn long does it take to sculpt a statue?).
Target doesn’t donate anything, opting to tell us to get involved in our communities.
And Wells Fargo seems to be saying we should save our own money to realize the dream.
