Italy Earthquake Relief Fund - The Big Picture

GG is transparent, and the site notes: “When a donor makes a $100 donation, $85 goes to the project(s) of his/her choosing, and $10 goes to fund the many programs and services we offer nonprofits. Then $3 goes to cover standard credit card or transaction fees, and the remaining $2 goes to administrative costs of running GlobalGiving.” Historically, I would have referenced the Red Cross or the International Red Cross, but seeing what a disastrous clusterfuck Red Cross has become: Their claim that 91% of donations went to affected people/areas is false, their lack of transparency, and wasted money, strongly makes me advise you to steer clear of them.

If you want to see your donated monies actually get deployed to the affected areas, I suggest donating elsewhere. The Global Giving’s Italy Earthquake Relief Fund looks more promising.

It can also be a person who owns one million units of currency in a bank account or savings account. Depending on the currency, a certain level of prestige is associated with being a millionaire, which makes that amount of wealth a goal for some, and almost unattainable for others.[1] In countries that use the short scale number naming system, a billionaire is someone who has at least a thousand times a million dollars, euros, or the currency of the given country (e.g. $1,000,000,000). In contrast, a trillionaire in countries that use the long scale number naming system would be someone who has at least a million times a million units of currency (e.g. $1,000,000,000,000). There is no evidence that anyone on the planet has achieved the latter in either US dollars or euros. Terminology[edit] Net worth vs. financial assets[edit] Influence[edit] Historical worth[edit]
