Oh. My. God. Really?
Read the WSJ Wealth Report article. $300K for Cristal and Caviar – and a tour of 3rd world poverty. Positioned as a great way to increase awareness and philanthropy. Topped with truffles and ice cream.
How is it possible to construe this as a good thing? The poor become nothing short of a circus attraction. What about providing a $25K meal (not that I think there’s any possible way for a meal to be worth this price tag) and taking the other $275K to actually DO something about poverty, not just point and stare and the people living within it???
