The gap between the have and have nots seems to be getting wider all the time and on one hand it’s great that Gates and Buffett are trying to persuade others in their tax bracket to give back — it’s also shocking to see just how much money some people have. I mean jaw dropping sums of it while there are many many many more that don’t have enough to buy food for tonite’s meal.
Giving back not only helps others, it feeds your soul. Everyone should take some time & think about ways they can give back – whether it’s time, money, food, experience, clothing — even writing notes to armed forces is a way to give back. You don’t need to be a billionaire to make a difference – so while Gates and Buffett try to persuade the rich folk to give dollars, we can all give in ways that fit our ‘middle class’ lifestyle and it will still make a difference — i guarantee it!
Gates and Buffet are coming to push their pet cause — the so called Billionaires Pledge — trying to persuade the rich, no matter where they may live, to donate half of their wealth to charitable causes.
