Too little too late.

Did anyone else notice the GM commercials yesterday? They're promising to give $100 from every new car sold to the VFW's National Home.

If you missed it, here's the information:
GM Rallies Around Families of Servicemen

Notice this part:

"In honor of Memorial Day, General Motors (GM) is honoring America's heroes by supporting the families at the VFW National Home. Buick, Pontiac and GMC will donate $100 for every car sold to the VFW National Home between May 22 and May 31. GM expects to donate several million dollars. "

Problem is, they didn't start airing the ads until YESTERDAY. Those ads proudly proclaimed, "From now until May 31st." Well, yesterday (aka the "now" referenced in the commercial) was the 29th. So basically, you have 2 days if you want to take them up on that offer.

So GM gets lots of glory without actually having to DO much.
