"There are only so many ways to spend money. The trappings of wealth look almost identical from one person to the next. Philanthropy, on the other hand, provides an opportunity to create. There, one can innovate and make use of wealth in a way that is unique. I want my peers to join me now in establishing a legacy that will make the world a significantly better place."
