Percy Ross, a Giving Man and Newspaper
"...Ross was best known for his
philanthropy, particularly through his Thanks a Million
newspaper column, where he would often grant requests for readers in
need. Thanks a Million ran in over 800 publications for 17
years. It eventually became a syndicated radio show running on over
400 radio stations. From the column and shows, he gave away an
estimated US$20 to $30 million over a period of 17 years."
Everybody who was around during that
time, surely had heard about Percy Ross. And to me, he was always a
hero, a role model to look up to.
When researching more info about
him, it became clear that there were many attributes to describe him
as searching the limelight, basking in his popularity.
So what? The result is still the
same: Percy Ross gave to a lot of people.
In Homeopathic Medicine, there is a
quote: "Who Cures Is Right".
In that sense, let there be voices
of criticism. These are just voices - Percy Ross delivered actions!
