Corporate Sandwich Boards

On Wednesday, January 26, 2011, Homeless In America blogged a story that some people are chilled to the idea that wearing an ice cream logo can help keep the homeless warm. Some homeless now have commercial sponsors: they're sporting warm winter jackets with logos for Ben & Jerry's ice cream helping to raise money for a bunch of nuns who aid the needy. Should companies give for the sake of giving instead of treating the homeless like a NASCAR racer blanketed in an avalanche of logos?

Over the past year, HIA readers, visitors and bloggers were surveyed about this cool prospect. Is this a case of being “corporate sandwich boards” or receiving charity? Here is how everyone responded:

52% felt they were corporate sandwich boards.

47% believed it was a case of receiving charity.
