Full post to come on breadpig.com, but watch the video now and get excited about breadpig's newest partners in do-goodery. Visit their website to give support in donations or kind messages (but do consider the former if for no other reason than to make those swines at breadpig pay!).
A lovely pile of matches!
There's been a lot of pretty wild speculation on reddit lately. And I can say that every conspiracy theory I've read in the last few days is way off the mark. Until I saw this photograph with reddit's community manager, Erik Martin (@Hueypriest).
“If my children are competent, they don’t need my money,” Mr. Yu explained. “If they’re not, leaving them a lot of money is only doing them harm.”
To make sure that didn’t happen, he appointed HSBC as his foundation’s trustee and stipulated that none of its holdings could be inherited, sold or invested.
In a society where capitalism is just 30 years old, and charitable giving an even younger concept, Mr. Yu says one of his primary goals in making a show out of giving his money away was to set an example to other rich Chinese. “Everybody has a different view of money. Some do good things with it, some rich people do nothing with it. …My goal is to be a leader, a pioneer who encourages rich people, inside and outside of China, to do something charitable.”
And as a reward from all that driving, there's a roller coaster!
