Oprah is doing her. Get yourself a few billion, and do YOU.

All of a sudden, you want to tell the rich how to give away their money? Tacky...don't 'cha think?

Hey, pommysmommy...instead of internet, you should donate the monthly fee to charity. And instead of heating and cooling your house, you should donate that money to charity. And instead of all the clothes you have, you should keep one set and donate the rest to charity.

She donates plenty to charity. At some point, you can do other things with your money, like enjoy yourself.
