Two Ways to Spend Millions
A day before he met a tragic death in a traffic accident, the renowned British philanthropist Benzion Dunner O.B.M. reportedly distributed two million pounds sterling in Purim gifts to the needy.
What a striking contrast with what other wealthy people do with their money!
Take the example of an Arab sheikh in one of the Persian Gulf Emirates who recently spent $2.7 million on the purchase of one camel. Reading about this extravagant acquisition one person with a long memory for advertising slogans could not help but quip:
"I've heard someone saying 'I'd walk a mile for a Camel (cigarette)' but I never dreamed someone would pay millions for one."
