Apple donates $1 million to families of rescue workers

An Apple spokesperson confirmed for MacCentral today the company would donate $1 million dollars to the families of rescue workers that lost their lives in the attacks on two American cities last week.

Apple will also be donating an iBook to each of these families with children.

"Apple is donating one million dollars to the families of the firefighters, police and other emergency response personnel who lost their lives, through the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund," an Apple spokesperson told MacCentral. "In addition, we will donate one iBook to each of these families with children this holiday season."
