The Wisdom of Giving

If you were one of the wealthiest people on the planet and you're getting old, will you find it in your heart to give away your riches to the less fortunate?

"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."
~ Sir Winston Churchill

I saw a TV broadcast on this. He is giving away US$37 bil.! This will surely help in the causes sponsored by the Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation.

God bless this generous soul.

SAKURA: Giving money to family is common and expected, but giving money to people you don't know can be a real challenge...especially when you're planning to give billions and billions of dollars. Hello to Sachiko, too!

BAYI: Generous, indeed. The NYT also said he never seriously considered doing anything with his $44 billion fortune except giving it all away. Wow!

JEY: All of it?

$6 for every person on Earth. He's so rich, that he's hired Bill Gates to spend his money.
