Ask yourself honestly: Does he seem like the type of person who actually would?

Basically, stupid wealthy Christian guys go to Harvard Business School to get an MBA and take an interdisciplinary class on God and Money at the Harvard Divinity School and it changed their view on money. They end up doing a survey of alumni of Harvard associated with the Harvard Christian Fellowship and find many like-minded Christians who simply make loads of money so they give oodles and oodles away.

Just cool to hear stories like this, even if I recognize they are the exception, not the rule. My granddad was a successful businessman and, while he lived a comfortable lifestyle, he also was very generous. During the years of his life that he made the most money, he did what he called a ‘reverse tithe,’ living on 10% of his income and giving away 90%.

As much as the the 1% gets dunked on, they’re the biggest givers to charity/non-profits. If it weren’t for them, many charities couldn’t keep going.

I'm not sure that is necessarily true. While the 1% might have the largest amount donated, they do not seem to donate as much as middle America.
