Apple CEO Joins League of Mega Donors

Hope Asia’s Rich Follow Their Examples

Apple CEO Tim Cook is joining the likes of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and several other Western business luminaries by announcing his decision to donate all his wealth for social, charitable causes.

tim-cook-apple-ceoHis individual wealth is estimated to be worth $785 million, which is nowhere close to the billions that are in the kitty of the other big donors he joins.

Notwithstanding the magnanimity of these donors, there will always be people who pass snide remarks, even accusing them of doing so to dodge taxes.

But, a pertinent question will be: when will filthy rich Asian businessmen follow in the footsteps of the mega donors?

It is worth noting that the largesse of the Western donors is mostly used to help impoverished nations in Asia and Africa!
