15Billionaire Gives $8 Billion Over Lifetime
Chuck Feeney is a name that most people do not really know. The truth is that Billionaires like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates consider Feeney to be their personal hero. The reason is because Feeney has given virtually his entire fortune away over the course of
his life! He made his money in the duty free retail industry and silently (he did it under anonymity for years) gave his fortune away to a wide variety of charities. All told, he has given right around $8 billion away in his 85 years of living. These days, he lives with his wife in a rented apartment and doesn’t own a car. Life is simple and has been for a number of years for Feeney, who believes wholeheartedly in the spirit of giving.
