I wonder which version is softest

Jesse can't wrap his head around the rationale of Christian publishing house, Thomas Nelson Publishers, plans to donate 100,000 bibles to the Hurricane Katrina Relief efforts [emphasis added]
First, we will donate 100,000 Bibles to the relief efforts. Why Bibles? This afternoon, an official in Baton Rouge said on Fox News, "We need water, food ... and Bibles." This is something I knew we could help with. Samaritan's Purse, an organization headed by Franklin Graham, one of our authors, has agreed to distribute these for us. We will begin shipping them to Louisiana as soon as we get instructions from Samaritan's Purse.

Second, I have approved a matching contribution program for our employees. We will match dollar for dollar any contribution our employees make to Samaritan's Purse up to [a total of] $50,000.
I understand this because my late Uncle Myer had some great stories to tell about obtaining certain necessities* when he was in Siberia.

* OK, I admit it, this is a total and completely disrespectful cheapshot - but the company is only matching up to a total $50K?!
