shocked I wish Nigeria politicians will learn from the this

Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.

To be honest,I can't do it...I have families,friends and religious places to give
That's why you're not him. He gave to worthy causes, not friends, cronies and religious houses.

E nor born ni? Hmmmmundecided

Modified:
My earlier comment wasn't explicit enough; hence, the unnecessary mentions...


The children of the cofounder of Nike are just your average Americans because their dad didn't leave much stocks for them. This was someone worth billions of dollars in his lifetime.

Charity is a good cause but we all strive to acquire this wealth to leave an inheritance or at the very least, A Life Starter Pack.

I'll give to the charity but will most definitely leave the chunk of it for my children. I didn't come this far to have them go through the process of starting afresh again. O wrong nau! Very wrong!!

Imagine a child who's accustomed to a lifestyle now having to start from the bottom because they were unable to maintain such all because "parent" wanted to be hero/heroine??.??! That's depression!! WTF?!!!

Why are you giving to charity in the first place? Isn't it because someone is financially unfit or needs the support at least?

Why put your children in such a precarious situation??. I can never understand it!

Any parent who does that is only but selfish— such an inconsiderate parent!

He also gave more than $700million in gifts to health causes ranging from a $270million grant to improve public healthcare in Vietnam to a $176million gift to the Global Brain Health Institute at the University of California, San Francisco.

One of his final gifts was a $350million donation for Cornell to build a technology campus on New York City’s Roosevelt Island.

'Chuck was a cornerstone in terms of inspiration for the Giving Pledge,' Warren Buffett said.

'He's a model for us all. It's going to take me 12 years after my death to get done what he's doing within his lifetime.'

'Chuck created a path for other philanthropists to follow.

I remember meeting him before starting the Giving Pledge.

He told me we should encourage people not to give just 50 percent but as much as possible during their lifetime.

No one is a better example of that than Chuck.

Many people talk to me about how he inspired them. It is truly amazing,' Bill Gates said.

He kept aside $2million for his and his wife's retirement.
