  1. How relevant is the donation for displaying shareholder or stakeholder management? What would Milton say about that decision?

    2) Workers are not sent to Indonesia. THey are already there.
    3) I’m unclear why you organize in this order.

    • Sorry that was supposed to say sending work to Indonesia not sending workers! I’m confused by your question about what the donation is for displaying shareholder or stakeholder management. I outline my papers in an outline-like format. I will gladly change it if it’s too confusing. Just let me know!
