Charity is something you do for your inner happiness, not for attention or benefits

I have been in the non-profit sector for over 20 years and have successfully raised funds for charities both locally and internationally. I provide the strategic lead function for the children and young people’s voluntary sector. In this context, children and young people are defined as those aged up to eighteen, with an upper age limit of twenty five for those with a special educational needs and/or disability. We have a rich and diverse group of voluntary and community groups providing services in a number of districts and towns, including those working in education, early years, youth work, social care, arts and culture and the environment.

Alan Naiman was known for a thriftiness that veered into comical, but those closest to him had no inkling of the fortune he quietly amassed.

It takes a very special human being to devote his entire life to this - a true hero.

The managers of the charities will now give themselves a hefty pay rise.

Sadly only about 10% or less goes to the real recipients when you donate to charity but it was a great gesture.

The article seemed to glaze over a potential source of the funds. He was a banker before spending two decades as a social worker. What kind of banker?

As nice as this is, wouldn't it be even nicer to live in a world where this kind of sacrifice wasn't needed to ensure the most vulnerable could live.

I love his good will gesture but he was a miser. Not a good way to live.
