Percy Ross was a rich man. But he didn’t want his money. He gave it all to other people because when he was a boy, he was very poor. He worked hard and became a successful businessman. But he remembered the time when he was poor. He wanted to help poor people. “I want to give all my money away before I die,” he said.
People wrote him letters. In their letters people told Mr. Ross why they needed money. Mr. Ross and his assistants read all the letters. (He got 12.000 letters a week.) Then Mr. Ross decided to give money to some people. He usually sent money to old people, sick people and poor children. A mother wrote Mr. Ross, “I have two daughters, ages one and eight. I give the baby one bottle of milk every day. I want to give her two bottles of milk every day, but I don’t have enough money. I also want to give my older daughter ice cream sometimes. Can you help me?” Mr. Ross sent the woman a check. “This will buy much more than ice cream,” he wrote.
Sometimes Mr. Ross didn’t send people money. He sent them things they needed – shoes, a bicycle, a smoke alarm, a hearing aid, new pots and pans, or a sewing machine. Ross usually didn’t send money to young, healthy people. A 16-year-old boy wrote, “I need $900 to buy a good used car. I really need it because I like a girl. She doesn’t like me because I don’t have a car.” Mr. Ross wrote the boy, “You don’t need a car. You need a new girlfriend.” Some people were angry when Mr. Ross didn’t send them money. One man wrote, “I asked you for $20.000 and you didn’t send it. What’s $20.000 to a rich man like you? You are a horrible man! Now I have no chance to become something.”
For twenty years Percy Ross gave money to people. Then, in 1999, he stopped, because all his money was gone. “I gave $30 million away,” he said. “That’s all I had. Now I have no money. But in many ways, I am a rich man.”
