Today's Most: Man people thought was poor donates $188 million to charity

Posted: Updated:

TODAY'S MOST...Wonderful reminder of the spirit of giving: A man people thought was poor donated almost $200 million dollars to charity when he died. 98-year old Jack McDonald lived in Seattle. He wore clothes with holes in them, clipped coupons, and took public transportation. Nobody outside his close circle of family and friends realized he was a very rich man. When he died, he left all of his money to the Salvation Army, a children's hospital where he lived, and a law school. Mcdonald's gift is the sixth-largest in the country this year. He was a lawyer, who made most of his millions from investing. Throughout his life McDonald made donations to charities, sometimes anonymously. Much of this gift will go towards funding pediatric research.
