The Giving Pledge

 

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.”
