Not everyone is concerned with the welfare of the society he lives in and the great author of the Harry Potter series is definitely not one of them. Dropping from an exclusive billionaire to a millionaire for a cause which she understands better than those who never know how it feels unless they went through it. Here is another 16 million after 160 million to a great cause as she is no stranger to donating to charity.
What is the cause?
This time she has given away further $16 million to Edinburgh University to help them to reach a fundraising goal of US$555 million to set a clinic for multiple sclerosis and neurodegenerative diseases.
What turned a billionaire into lowly millionaire
What’s more difficult is to equally understand the reason behind sufferings and it’s not possible unless you ever had gone through it. The great philanthropist has been supporting and helping the every single parenthood. She has been wisely donating up to 160 million to Gingerbread, an organization that provides support, advices and campaigns for single parent families, One Parent Families and Comic Relief that help single parent families. Giving them opportunities to find employments, study further, provide child care facilities so single parent so they could feel control of their lives rather drowning into depression and ending up committing suicide. The reason for which she preferred to step down from her billionaire status is to bring a positive and lasting change in the lives of poor, single parent and disadvantage people.
Why she did it?
The author of the best selling book series in the history was once going through the worst financial situation of her life signing for the welfare benefits. There was a time when this divorced mother with a five month old baby, was living with her sister with three chapters of Harry Potter in her suitcase, engraved into poverty has led a rags to riches life story in which she progressed from living on state benefits to a multi millionaire best known author within five years. She wrote in many Café, wherever she could get Jessica to fall asleep . Drowning in depression and contemplated suicide because she felt herself as the biggest failure as she had no home, no job, a dependent child and no plan that what she is going to do for her, made her realize how tough it could get for a single parent to find a job and to provide child care facilities to their little babies. Not everyone is fortunate enough to turn into billionaire within five years and so she supports every idea to help a parent.
What made her do it?
She believes in the fact that if you’ve been given far more than you need then you got a moral responsibility to do wise things with it and give it away intelligently. She has this instinct of a moral obligation to help individuals who are in a similar situation as she used to be.
When it’s about the charity warren buffet, Bill and Melinda Gates, George Kaiser, Walton Family are few of many supporting and encouraging humanitarian causes and education where as she is one of the few individuals donating for single parents and today she is an inspiration to many others. Hope people care and donate about suffering the way they want others to help them out.
