Millionaire Invests in the Planet

Now thats what I call putting your cash back into society. Not gambling it away or self investment. I believe there is always room for anyone in this world to donate money to charity no matter how much you earn. It doesnt matter what your background is we can all afford to help others. And in most cases helping others pays off and improves your reputation and gives you a sense of purpose.

Well done Douglas.
