    I would love to donate 10 million dollars to charity.I feel 10% of my wealth to charity is a small price to pay.As soon as I have 100 million in cash,I will spend my entire life seeking out needy causes and people to assist.Today I gave away 10% of my wealth,and am looking forward to giving away another $9,999,999.90 as soon as I reach my goal.Unfortunately it seems as those who would do the most good dont have the resources,and those who have the resources prefer to die before doing any good,if anything,with their extra money.

      Well hey if you have the money to donate that much, then by all means, you're supporting a good cause.

      If you are wealthy and plan on donating money, don't be ignorant about it. Be sure to ask what percentage of your money is being absorbed as overhead within the wealthy people who run the charity. Example of this is the red cross. Most of their help comes from volunteer work while the wealthy people at the top absorb most of the donations for themselves. This is another fault in life where the rich support the rich and the people in need receive less than adequate help.

      Check out my hub.  I am dirt poor and have helped lots of poor get help no charity run by wealthy liars could compare to.

    I think you are wrong about people who are worth millions. They do donate to causes they believe in.

      You mean like Rupert Murdoch and the Koch brothers who subsidize climate change deniers, opponents of environmental regulations, Tea Partiers, etc.? On the other hand, there are Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, the McArthurs and others.

    Yes, both.
    Unfortunately, there are still billionaires out there with "more money than sense."
    But the ones you name are donating consistent with their worldviews and alliances.

    let's see...

    our federal and state governments have spent around 1-2 trillion each year for the past couple of years.

    Divide that by 300,000,000... and...

    You could've been donating around $5000 per year to whatever cause you wanted!

    ... not to mention the inflation tax....
