Are you ready to “Give Back like a 1-Percenter”?
I have found in my life there are not many gifts greater than the gift of being able to pay it forward. Because of this, I have committed to marking down over half of my gross income each year from my various businesses and investments. For me, ‘Giving Back like a 1-Percenter’ stands for not only donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to deserving charities each year, but also being involved in helping change the world.
I am very selective about the charities that I donate to. Charities I have donated to in the last year include the following:
Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation
LaGuardia High School
Various Green Land Conservation Programs
As well as:
- Keep Memory Alive
- Helen Keller International
- and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Greater Los Angeles Chapter
I’m doing this to show you I believe in the concept of ‘Giving Back like a 1-Percenter’; giving back to my community, my country and the world.
