Her rags-to-riches story is well-known and her achievements in writing one of the most popular series in the world are astonishing. Although tears almost accompanied my goosebumps when we visited “Hogwarts” in Orlando, I wouldn’t call myself a die-hard fan. I just always thought JK Rowling was notably impressive and of course, a great story-teller. Well, I also now believe that she’s an amazing person.
Recently, I learned that she didn’t make it to the “Billionaires’ Club” this time around because she made substantial donations to charity organizations focusing on children’s welfare, ms, poverty and illiteracy. This truly inspires me. While I donate what/when I can to charities and causes I believe in, I’d like to think that when I amass millions of dollars in the future (or in a parallel universe which is more plausible), I would follow suit and give as much as I receive.
“You have a moral responsibility when you’ve been given far more than you need, to do wise things with it and give intelligently.” – JK Rowling
