I have been doing some maths and found the following interesting….
Billionaires that give away their money within their lifetime, they sign up to a Pledge.
‘Pledgers’ to commit to giving away at least half their fortunes during their lifetimes or upon their deaths.
The Giving Pledge, was begun by Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates.
If you earned interest at 4% the following would be true: –
If you had 100 million, you would earn you £11,000 per day
If you had 1 billion you would earn you £110,000 per day Nice – wait 5 days for a nice house, then have another in 4!
If the following three people gave 95% away today:
This would mean 76 billion (Bill Gates), would earn you $7,920,000 per day (eight million ,
three hundred sixty thousand)
If you had 64 billion (Amancio Ortega), would earn you $7,040,000 per day (seven million ,
(Not sure if he is in “The Pledge” or not, but if he was…)
If you had 58 billion(Warren Buffett, would earn you $6,380,000 per day (six million ,
three hundred eighty thousand)
Just these three add up to 188 billion in a bank earning 4% interest which is $20,680,000(20 million dollars, 680 thousand, or £12,468,078 – 12 million pounds) per day,
and with that
seven billion, seven hundred ninety two million, three hundred eighty five thousand dollars every year could be for charities.
12 million a day for good uses!
Divide by each charity in the uk 180,000 and they each get £69.20 extra a day!
or we support the top 10 charities they would get £1,246,807 per day
or we support the top 100 charities they would get £124,680 per day
or we support the top 1000 charities they would get £12,468 per day
Each billionaire should do this for their own country or sponsored country, like with famine etc
