Joan of Arches

Joan Kroc, heiress of Mickey D's donates $1.5 Billion to Salvation Army through the McDonald's Corporation estate.
Half of the donated money is to go toward construction of 30 to 35 new centers, which would provide recreational and educational facilities to the public, according to the paper. The other half is supposed to go into an endowment, from which the interest will be used to help offset operating costs, it said.
It's encouraging to see that wealth is still sometimes used for selfless good. I mean she could have just donated MS software-laden computers hamburgers to school libraries lunch programs.
