You’ve inherited $5 million, with instructions that you must give it all away — but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?
There’s so much good that can be done around the world. $5 million is a lot of money and I feel that even more is needed to take care of the poor in this world – to feed, bathe and give them proper shelter, care & medicines. And if I am giving money away, whether it is mine or if I am able to select an organization that will receive it to do the needful accordingly, I want to make sure that the money is put to good use and that it doesn’t go into the deep pockets of the greedy corporates or a politicians or a whatever.
So which one – homeless? poor & needy? the sick who can’t afford medicines or adequete treatment? the old? the weak? the recovering addicts? the abused and used? the crack children? victims of rape? the disabled? What about the animals who have been abused, sick & abandoned? How do you choose? I wish we could irradicate all forms of diseases & sickness, all injuries, all pain & suffering and everything that hurts us physically and we never have to feel hurt again. Not just us humans but our animal friends too! Wouldn’t that be great?
Since that is just a fantastic dream I’d give it to orphanages and hopefully the kids there will get something good out of it – more clothes, school stuff and food. And just maybe some of those kids will grow up to become scientists who help to fulfill my dream!
