Tom Hunter, a Scotsman, is giving away most of his wealth to charitable causes. He says he doesn't want to die rich. To the $200m he gave away a few years back he's adding another $2bn. As I said, he's a Scotsman. He'll be left with "almost nothing" - he'll have to scrape by on the $200m that's left.

Where did we all go wrong? Quite seriously, he'd be interested to hear of worthwhile causes.

I like to give to organizations that reach the most diverse groups on the island. Therefore, I have worked for the San Pedro Library. All students on the island use our services. We also have a summer program free to the San Pedro kids. We have a reading program and work with all schools and groups on island serving people who wish to have access to books. We now have a reference library incuding a new encyclopedia. But there is continued need. We need to expand the facility so that students and community members are able to have a library that reflects the growing and expanding community. We need to have staff for our tutoring program and to expand our adult literacy outreach program. We have computers donated by Captain Morgans and the Chamber of Commerce but they need to be constantly updated and serviced and we need help with that. We need volunteers to teach the classes that will teach the kids to use the internet. We have graduated over 100 students but want to have more graduates. Has anyone read the book "How the Scots invented the Modern World" by Arthur Herman. It is amazing

I believe that Mr. Hunter should help out the San Pedro Library. That would be nice.

Mr. Hunter,
Please donate a new jump plane to mr. reaper. He is a worthy cause. A twin otter would be fine!
Thank you!

Feed Africa! But I'm afraid $2bn is not enough.
