*** begin quote ***
Denny Sanford, 83, made his fortune, estimated by Forbes to be at $2.2 billion, in banking and credit card companies. He said he plans to die broke, having given away his fortune. To date, he has donated $1.6 billion to causes that include health care research and services, neglected children, the University of Minnesota, education, the San Diego Children’s Zoo, stem cell and breast cancer research. “It’s a joy to help other people, I will die broke. Everything is committed to different organizations.”
*** end quote ***
About all that’s missing is keeping it “secret”.
(Ever heard that old Irish adage about “good works only count if done in secret”. Means you can get your reward in Heaven or here on earth with praise; not both! Funny, I learned that from my maternal English Protestant grandmother who wanted to teach me about my maternal grandfather’s “heathen Irish culture that has a few good points”. ROFL!)
You really can’t take it with you.
