This post reveals my heart behind today's post: if you have a lot of money, you should give away what you don't need.*
I love cars. I love fast cars. I'd love to even just drive the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster. But I could never own one with a clean conscience. Basically, I know that $146,000 could feed an entire village in Kenya for about two years.
So if someone goes to F.C. Kerbeck in New Jersey and buys a new Vantage with cash, they could save about $28,000 just in interest payments. Again, a village could eat for a month, at least.
I'd challenge any Vantage owner to visit rural Africa. They might sell that car and drive a new Prius instead. And send the proceeds to the village they visited.
* I speak to myself on that too. I don't have a lot of money by Vantage owner standards, but by African villager standards, I'm fabulously wealthy. (I could be a lot more generous!)
