sara blakely donating half her fortune giving pledge

You know you’ve made it when you’re giving to the same charities as Warren Buffett and Bill Gates!

Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx, is one of the youngest billionaires in the world.

So what is she going to do with all that ca$$$h? The same thing that Bill and Warren did: donate it!

Blakey recently signed the Giving Pledge, which states that she’ll give 50% her money to philanthropic causes. She stated:

"I pledge to invest in women because I believe it offers one of the greatest returns on investment. I am committed to the belief that we would all be in a much better place if half the human race (women) were empowered to prosper, invent, be educated, start their own businesses, run for office — essentially be given the chance to soar!"

How generous!

It’s always great to see people who have made it help other who want to be just like them. Maybe some of her cash will help build up another billionaire, just like her!
