I read an insightful article about some of world’s wealthiest pledging to charity today. What’s most interesting is the level they’re being challenged to give….can you say HALF? The total is about $600 Billion collectively. Yep, that’s right! You can read the article for yourself by clicking here.
The initiative is spearheaded by Melinda Gates, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett. The initiative is called Giving Pledge. The goal is to provide resources to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. Each giver would give to a cause they deem worthy.
Above is a letter from Warren Buffett to David Rockefeller. After reading the article, I understand more the importance of work accomplished through the power of relationships not just money.
Also, the letter is good example of how one of the wealthiest men in the world makes an invitation. So much for a bunch of words to get your message across. 🙂
