I just found out from a Wisconsin friend about a man who has made a commintment to make a big difference against poverty - I know there are many philantropists who do a great deal of good but I just learned about this one and want to share. A Wisconsin philanthropist, Joseph Zilber, is today committing to donating 50 million dollars over the next 10 years to improve life in Milwaukee's low-income neighborhoods. This man is 90 years old, and is hoping to spark at least $150 million in additional grants by others for this purpose. Talk about ripple effect - and in a concrete way. Blessings on your head, Joseph Zilber.
