It’s easy to give away half your retirement funds to the poor when you have billions and still have billions and millions left for yourself. But this 67 year old gave half his $2M retirement pension to the poor even when he may have many more years ahead of him.
Many people in his situation will probably be thinking – what if I suddenly suffer a major illness or have a sudden need. Will I have enough for myself since I don’t have a big sum left. I commend him for self-denial and taking such a bold and generous step.
