    What’s so puzzling about it? They’re hacking for pleasure, while playing robin hood.

    Not *entirely* sure what’s so puzzling about it, given our current climate.

    If these hacker realy wanted to benefit these charities they would have kept their mouths shut.

    They’re putting charities in a tough spot with this PR stunt.

    I can’t wait for this to become an episode of [Darknet Diaries.](darknetdiaries.com). This is right in Jack’s wheelhouse.

    Anyone wanna hack me €50K to start a donkey sanctuary come ethnobotanical nursery where people can help themselves to healing?

    Nice concept. But giving money to organised charity does not really help anyone in need.

    Heart goes out to these heroes. Taking money from cunty corrupt corporations n giving it to those who need it more.

    Nothing puzzling about it. We live in a deeply corrupt capitalist system.

    When was extorting millions of dollars from companies a bad thing in the first place?

    Workers made that money, companies stole a huge portion of the surplus value created by the worker.

    Basically redistributing already stolen money.

    Shouldn’t really be called Robin Hood, if they were stealing from the IRS and giving it to the poor it would be more apt.

    Nice cover-up. Steal millions and save a little for yourself, donating the rest, so you look like a hero.

    Looks like Elliot and Darlene have pulled off another one.

    This is going to be a new route for money laundering. Cash from nowhere to barely legit charities who pay executives big salaries and do nothing or very little for the causes they ‘support’.

    It’s just a new hacking group that wants some fame. Highly doubt they really did the hack nor the real hacker is giving away the stolen money. Real hacking groups don’t advertise what they do like that.

    But if they are, GIVE ME SOME FREE MONEY!!! lol

    Why should it? Hackers are the same as anyone else. Sometimes motivated by greed, sometimes altruism, sometimes it switches. Or maybe they are hoping to benefit from the publicity if they are ever caught.

    Non-profits are not going to accept stolen funds whatever form they are in anyway, so they might as well dump it in the trash, unless that’s what they wanted to do in the first place.
