Generous Billionaire (4 photos)

Personally, I have been associated with the billionaire yachts, villas, expensive cars, but not this man named Chuck Feeney (Chuck Feeney).
He was 81 years old, he made his fortune in the 7, 5 billion. You do not have the car, flies economy class, lives in a rented apartment.

One could call it a screw, shaking over every penny, if not for the fact that over the past 30 years he gave to charity more than 6 billion. The money was spent on education, health, science, the content of nursing homes in the United States, Vietnam, Australia, South Africa, Ireland and Bermuda. He's not going to stop, and plans until 2016 to give to good causes all the remaining money.

Moreover, this extravagant rich man is not interested in not only money but also fame: giving his billions, he tried to stay in the shadows, and the first 15 years it was doing quite well, because No one knew about his charity work. Then came the "exposure", although after that Feeney was behaving very modestly. For example, it is known that up until 2012 he gave no more than 5 interview.

Chuck Feeney - a wonderful man. Starting a business from the bottom, selling alcohol to the sailors of the US Navy, he was able to put together a few years, the company with 200 employees in 27 countries. Its revenues increased at a tremendous speed, although most of them immediately went charities. Bill Gates called Finney's the perfect role model, noting that it is the best example of how to do good in life. Here's a he, the most generous man in the world.
