    What a great guy.

    It's nice when people with lots of money try to do good with it, instead of being idiots and spending it on obscene displays of wealth like big weddings and yachts.

    One thing he said that really resonated with me about charities..."They spend $1 million to make $15,000". This is so true, especially in major cities like New York and L.A. where these events are big social soirees at upscale places that require tons of employees to pull them off. Granted, a lot of the cost is underwritten by different companies but, regardless, someone has to pay for these events. Why not just for-go the event and put all of the money toward the charity?
