The Countries wealthiest people came together…about 14 of them with a net worth each in the BILLIONS…Oprah, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett to name a few. These people all had one thing in common besides their money: They like to give it away. Warren proposed that each person at the party join him on the newly created website “The Giving Pledge” and post their Philanthropic statement online. I love that Warren said “Some material things make my life more enjoyable; many, however, would not. I like having an expensive private plane, but owning a half-dozen homes would be a burden. Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends.”
