Philanthropists Bill and Joyce Cummings sign away half their wealth!

Post by Guest on Tue May 10, 2011 10:49 am

Earlier this month, the Cummingses became the first people in Massachusetts to sign the Giving Pledge, promising to donate at least half of their fortune to charity. The pledge was established last year by Buffett and the Gateses to encourage the super-rich to share their wealth.

Signing it “was a pretty easy thing for us to do,’’ Bill Cummings, 74, said in an interview. “It’s what we’ve expected to do for a long time.’’

Nice story-I thought it would be nice for all to read something positive about the rich. Quite a few of them DO care.

Still waiting on the trickle down from the 1980s Waiting
