    So I just watched a bit of Secret Millionaire USA. Im in the UK btw, so some people in the states will have watched it a few months back.

    It featured a guy called John Ferber, who made 500 million bucks selling his site to AOL. He went down to skid row and done some work with the people down there.

    Its quite touching to see people giving back to the community.

    That Emilio guy is also a legit guy. The bit where he took his own shoes off his feet and get them to some homeless guy, damn, cut me deep.

    Nice post. Always good to see something positive. The thing is that with a lot of people that I have had some success in life, they never lose their work ethic. This guy has channeled that energy into doing something good. Hats off to him.
