Google Sends Out $20 Million Worth of Holiday Presents in 2009

We thought Google was notgoing to give out holiday gifts, and in exchange, inviting publishers to lunch. But starting yesterday, Google began sending out a holiday e-mail card to both advertisers and publishers. The card basically said Google is doing something a bit different this year and instead of giving out presents, they are giving $20 million to charity on our behalf.

Here is a picture of the e-card which leads to

Google Holiday Present 2009

Here is a picture of the landing page:

Overall, people are happy with this as their gift this year. We have thread at DigitalPoint Forums & WebmasterWorld.

Want to see the previous years gifts? See 2008, 2007, 2006, and 2005.

It's a great idea and a wonderful initiative on their part but something very deep downs tells me they got away much cheaper with 20 Million than they would have gotten away with on actual presents. I'd love to know how much they spent last year just to compare.. Any which way though, 20 million is a nice gift during the holiday season
