In Australia, the wealthiest 1% have the same wealth as the bottom 70%. That is 243 000 people living in this country have the same wealth as 17 million Australians combined.
With 5 million Australians living pay packet to pay packet with no reserves at all, wouldn’t it be great if we could motivate the super rich to be a bit more generous!

Today I’m issuing a challenge to one of Australia’s richest men, Harry Triguboff to sign up to Bill Gates’ Giving Pledge and give 1 billion dollars to charity.

I’d love you to have a listen to my challenge to Mr Triguboff by listening to my podcast here.

I’d love for you and your friends to come up with any suggestions on how we can get Harry (and other Aussie billionaires) to join the 173 pledgers from 22 countries who have signed The Giving Pledge, or to set up charitable foundations to assist those who are less well off. Just leave me a comment below.
