Philanthropist donates $7.5 billion & lives modestly to help others.

“An Irish-American billionaire who kept his philanthropy secret for 15 years has given away $7.5billion (£4.9billion) – and plans for it all to go to charity before his dies.

Chuck Feeney, 82, wears a $15 Casio watch, travels in coach, does not own a car is a self-confessed ‘shabby dresser’ and sensibly made his children work their way through college.

He has given away 99 per cent of his fortune to health, science, education and civil rights causes around the world through his Atlantic Philanthropies foundation.”
