Auckland commercial property developer Ted Manson has recently built some high rise buildings containing small CBD apartments.
A number of these he’s allocated to a 15 year lease to the state at a discounted rental, as a charitable gesture (to the taxpayer).
Manson has given a lengthy interview to the New Zealand Herald about philanthropy.
He is quoted thus; “Not enough wealthy people give enough back. If all the well-off people here spent time and money helping those less well-off, New Zealand wouldn’t have such a divide between rich and poor”.
Ted, take notice. I know many wealthy people. All are philanthropic, many to degrees, by a country mile way beyond your efforts.
Where they differ from you is they don’t feel the need to ring the news media and tell them about it.
