Actor Chow Yun-fat to Donate His Entire $714 Million Fortune

Actor Chow Yun-fat of the famous movie Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, revealed in a recent interview that he plans on donating his entire $714 million fortune to charity after he dies.

Chow told Jayne Stars“My dream is to be a happy and normal person. The hardest thing in life is not about how much money you earn, but how to keep a peaceful mindset and live the rest of your life in a simple and carefree manner.”

Chow said that the money is not even technically his, but something that he is a custodian of during his lifetime.

“This money isn’t something you possess forever. When you’re gone one day, you have to leave it to others to use it. The money’s not mine. I’m only keeping it safe for the time being,” he said.

 

Chow is known to live an extremely frugal lifestyle and claims to shop at thrift stores.

“I don’t wear clothes for other people. As long as I think it’s comfortable, then it’s good enough for me,” the actor said.

“I am happy if there’s food to eat, because we were quite poor then. I’ll be very happy eating sweet potatoes and vegetables, and even happier if I have chicken and meat during the new year,” he added.

Chow has also recently been censored by the Chinese government for his support of civil rights groups in Hong Kong.

Though it does happen every now and then, it is rare for celebrities to hand over so much of their wealth.

Sam Simon, the writer and producer who helped create the legendary television show The Simpsons, left his entire $100 million fortune to charity after passing away from cancer in 2015.

While Simon donated to many causes, animal rights was the single most important issue to the late writer and producer.

“A lot of it is selfish, I get to watch these animals that have been in concrete bunkers their whole life, I get to watch them take their first steps on grass, I get to fly my friends out. They’re dependent on us for that, and so I feel that it’s my responsibility to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves,” he said.

Simon founded the Sam Simon Foundation, an organization that specializes in helping service dogs.

More recently, details surfaced linking actor Keanu Reeves to a secret cancer foundation to fund children’s hospitals.

“I have a private foundation that’s been running for five or six years, and it helps aid a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research,” Keanu said in a Ladies Home Journal article from 2009.

Emma found light in the darkness by understanding what she needs to get back to mother nature. she was not comfortable with electricity. The sun and the moon are natural light which she relies on. Electricity is false and makes a false sense of security. As we use more and more of our natural resources we will be building our house of cards that will eventually collapse.

--------------------------------

There is always someone who has abandoned our society for a live a different lifestyle in the woods or in a cave, right? Whatever the reason is for their choice, it must be a very strong one, as is the case of Emma Orbach, who has been living for 18 years in the middle of a forest.

 

O verso do inverso

O verso do inverso

 

Emma lives in the mountains of Wales in a hut made of mud, straw and wood, and feeds exclusively on food from the trees and from what her chickens and goats provide her. But Emma is far from being excluded from society. The truth is that all the light, pollution and stress of modern life drove her crazy.

She spends her days taking care of the vegetable garden and her animals, while at night she stands near her stove calmly cooking and playing her flute. Could you live like this?

A Victim Treats His Mugger Right

Julio Diaz has a daily routine. Every night, the 31-year-old social worker ends his hour-long subway commute to the Bronx one stop early, just so he can eat at his favorite diner.

But one night last month, as Diaz stepped off the No. 6 train and onto a nearly empty platform, his evening took an unexpected turn.

He was walking toward the stairs when a teenage boy approached and pulled out a knife.

"He wants my money, so I just gave him my wallet and told him, 'Here you go,'" Diaz says.

As the teen began to walk away, Diaz told him, "Hey, wait a minute. You forgot something. If you're going to be robbing people for the rest of the night, you might as well take my coat to keep you warm."

The would-be robber looked at his would-be victim, "like what's going on here?" Diaz says. "He asked me, 'Why are you doing this?'"

Diaz replied: "If you're willing to risk your freedom for a few dollars, then I guess you must really need the money. I mean, all I wanted to do was get dinner and if you really want to join me ... hey, you're more than welcome.

"You know, I just felt maybe he really needs help," Diaz says.

Diaz says he and the teen went into the diner and sat in a booth.

"The manager comes by, the dishwashers come by, the waiters come by to say hi," Diaz says. "The kid was like, 'You know everybody here. Do you own this place?'"

"No, I just eat here a lot," Diaz says he told the teen. "He says, 'But you're even nice to the dishwasher.'"

Diaz replied, "Well, haven't you been taught you should be nice to everybody?"

"Yea, but I didn't think people actually behaved that way," the teen said.

Diaz asked him what he wanted out of life. "He just had almost a sad face," Diaz says.

The teen couldn't answer Diaz — or he didn't want to.

When the bill arrived, Diaz told the teen, "Look, I guess you're going to have to pay for this bill 'cause you have my money and I can't pay for this. So if you give me my wallet back, I'll gladly treat you."

The teen "didn't even think about it" and returned the wallet, Diaz says. "I gave him $20 ... I figure maybe it'll help him. I don't know."

Diaz says he asked for something in return — the teen's knife — "and he gave it to me."

Afterward, when Diaz told his mother what happened, she said, "You're the type of kid that if someone asked you for the time, you gave them your watch."

"I figure, you know, if you treat people right, you can only hope that they treat you right. It's as simple as it gets in this complicated world."
