Rich people who give money away

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Topping the list of rich people who give money away:  Prince Charles, Oprah, Angelina Jolie, Ellen DeGeneres.  You can even write to them to ask for money!  Wow.  If you were to write to one of these people, who would it be and what would you ask for?

I should have my kids write them and ask them to pay their college tuition!!! ROTF.gif I doubt any of them are going to pony up any money for us, but if I had to pick one of those, I'd pick Ellen I guess. Can't stand Oprah or Angelina and I would imagine Charles would prefer to give to people in the United Kingdom.

I would pick Ellen too.  She seems to make dreams come true for the ordinary person who has done extraordinary things.

I would also go with Ellen she seems to really care. I would ask for help pay for my tuition and books as I feel really guilty going back to school because of the cost. I also don't qualify for anything :(

I can't even imagine doing this personally. I guess I'd feel bad about using the money. However, I can think of a couple of charities who could desperately use the money.

I agree.  If you're asking on behalf of a charitable organization it's different than asking for a personal loan.

Oh I wouldn't be asking for a loan, I'd just be asking for free cash. lol

I would ask all of them because I know someone will turn me down

If I had to ask I would ask Angelina...we have been wanting to adopt for a long time and money is one of the big things holding us back. I think she would be someone who can understand the desire to give someone a loving home.

I would ask Ellen Degeneres for funds to cover the out-of-pocket medical expenses for my friend with the terminal daughter and the tuition for the private school for special needs children his son attends.
