I’d like to give a moment of gratitude to Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia who announced earlier this week he is giving away $32 billion, his entire fortune, to charitable causes. Among other things, the money will be used to:
- bring electricity to rural villages
- eradicate disease
- build orphanages and schools
- promote women’s literacy
- teach women how to run for local office
“Early in my life I had a dream that I have always hoped to realize. I wished to wake up one day to see a world of tolerance, acceptance, equality, and opportunity—for all.” – Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal
Thank you Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal!
