Ted Turner Giving Money Away in 2013

Ted Turner to me is one of the most inspirational philanthropists around today, most people recognize Warren Buffett and Bill Gates as one of the most generous billionaires in the world today, however, Ted Turner has advanced philanthropy considerably in his own way. Turner was inspired by philanthropy at a very young age by his father who he revered very much, with quite a modest salary his father gave money away very frequently to civic organizations and charitable causes and even helped two African-American students study to get their degree, Turner was deeply programmed by this act of kindness.

The Meeting That Changed Ted Turners Life


Before Ted Turner became a media mogul be explains early on in his career he went on a charitable dinner function and sat next to a man who was explaining how his family foundation had made a impact on the life of so many people, immediately Turner was able to identify with the elderly man who was comparable to his father, Turner filed this thought away and pledged that if he ever became rich he would help people in need.

The Billion Dollar Donation


Once Turner made his billions through the the CNN channel he made an astounding donation of $1 billion to help people all around the world, he became active in philanthropy and to date has visited over 60 countries to help people in need. Ted Turner was sometimes disappointed by the fact that many other billionaires simply did not do enough, instead they would eagerly await league tables to show who was richer than who. Turner came up with the revolutionary idea to create a giving league table which would show who was the most generous philanthropists and put to shame those who did not give away money even though they had plenty. 

The concept gave rise to the Forbes Philanthropy List, The Business Week top 50 American Philanthropists and the GivingPledge.Org. Now it seems that billionaires are scrambling all over their world to become the most generous. Ted Turner has accelerated philanthropy through forward thinking and his actions have unleashed more energy and commitment to philanthropy than ever before.

  4. Hello Ellen, how are you doing today? My name is Tamara, I am from Fort Myers, Fl. I am married and have two children. I am currently going to college for my BA in Health Care Administration Management. Through out my life, I have strived to be the best wife, mother, and friend that I can be. I wish I could attach some pictures for you. The only thing that I NEED is to have my teeth fixed. My teeth used to be so nice, but after having two children (and thanks to my genes) my teeth are crumbling apart and destroying my health, they are literally making me sick. I have seen a dentist who suggested that I have them surgically removed and get dentures. I have tried everything but I just can not afford to have this procedure done. This is pretty much a life or death situation for me,my children need me. So, if it is at all possible to get a little guidence through these hard times, I would greatly appriciate the help. Thank you!

  8. Dear Ellen. My name is Gita and I am writing to you from Slovakia. I am very upset because I got a hopeless situation, and you're the only hope for me. Dear Ellen, please read this letter, I know that you're a very good-hearted person, and you will understand me, because there are so many poor and deprived people of the help you give. It all started four years ago when a colleague of mine I have to borrow money in the belief to give back. He said that most need it, because if you can not pay the installment, the husband goes to prison. I helped him, and I loaned all my money, which was a credit card. We wrote a contract that I have to give it to me within two weeks. That did not happen ... I did not get my money back, the court can not do anything with it, because no work, no money. I took up a loan from the bank to sort out the credit cards because the bank threatened execution. I work for a fair, got a job, but unfortunately very little pay. My husband and I also spoiled my relationship, but I can not move separately because I do not know about the apartment and pay off the loan. Two years ago I met a nice young man on the Internet, he is the one whom is still in the mood to live ... We decided to invite him to Slovakia, and we want to live together. However, the invitation is a lot of money, because he lives in Morocco, and the bank will not give me a loan because the monthly salary € 300 short of two loan repayment. I do not know what to do, I tried everything, I worked at work, at home hand-sewn shoes, but I got some money for it, ten pairs of shoes € 2.60. I was just € 30.40 per month you earn. I'm sad and I cry a lot because my whole life is ruined so that someone can help me ... I know that many famous people have no problem to pay € 12,000 was, however, mean the life to me, and that I may live a happy, humble life. I could pay for it in the bank for a loan and I call you my dear...Please help us. Thank you for your willingness and time to read my request.Let God bless you.
