    Who will support my Poor Millionaire Fund?

    Fidelity Investments recently conducted a poll of millionaires (1,000 of them with a mean wealth of $3.5 mil) and found that 42% of them don't "feel wealthy". I feel really bad for them and decided to start my fund which so far only includes my piggybank (whose value is unknown but likely not very great). After all, it is virtually guaranteed I will never feel wealthy, but maybe, just maybe we can put them over the $7.5 mil. mark they say would make them feel "truly rich".

    I can't even fathom that type of wealth. I know my family can survive off very little. How sad was that when I realized my inlaws saved more money then my husband and I made in a whole year!

    Don't worry, each and every American taxpayer is paying heartily into the poor millionaire fund, particularly with the Republicans set to return to power asap.

    LOL. I suppose they don't "feel" wealthy because they live a "wealthy" lifestyle. I don't know about you but if I was worth 3.5 million I would be cruising around in an Aston Martin Vanquish, and I'd probably have a house so big that its ridiculous and I would pay people to clean it because I could.
    You are right though I should start my own fund. I'll call it "Phoenix needs a vanquish fund" anyone charitable enough to donate????

    I don't have enough money to support myself.

    But if you want an idea, I give you one (or a dozen) for free.  My motto in general is "free of charge".  Maybe that is why I am so poor?

    You have to be creative with words.  Don't ask for money for poor millionaires.  That is off-putting.  Establish a charity for people with emotional problems.  Being poor is feeling unhappy and we, humans, are very empathetic creatures - we help people in need.  The poorer we are the more empathetic indeed.

    You can organize an event - charity event - and ask more affluent members of society - but they would be likely looking for some prestige and advertising - ""Look at me, I was there and I donated..."

    "I adopted a black baby..."  (no names, but with your income you could have adopted an orphanage!)

    You are not going to do this, of course.  You probably need all this time for earning money for yourself.  But don't despair, you will always remember at the back of your mind, that there are people who are poorer than you simply because they feel this way.
