In the age of the internet, people have been flinging around the net worth of some of the richest people globally, and the words ‘billion’ or ‘million’ don’t seem as big as they used to.
While being a major billionaire is a massive deal for ordinary people in today’s world, it is a very normal occurrence for supreme business tycoons. Big company owners also outperform their rivals, tracing a massive jump in their world of finance and stocks.
However, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. In a bid to make a difference in the society, few billionaires are extending their fruitful contributions to the less unfortunate ones.
