Somehow I made the 2007 Richest People in America listing.
Here is a description of "The List" from the founder…
The REAL Richest People in America is about people making a difference. This inaugural list focuses on richness in giving with the aim of inspiring businesses and individuals to give their profits and their time.
Recipients will be selected not because of what they have or profit but because of what they give or what they do. “True richness comes from the love of giving back to society, and happens whether you make $10,000 or $10 million a year” says list founder Tim Richardson.
One of the coolest people to be profiled on the list is my friend and fellow Young Global Leader John Wood, founder of Room to Read. Check him out!
Onward with HOPE
