Chow Yun-fat Plans to Give His Entire Fortune to Charity

Chinese ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ star is going to give his entire fortune to charity.

He apparently, lives on about $102 (US dollars) /  $800 (Hong Kong dollars) a month.

He stays frugal by taking public transportation and doing charity work instead of spending it on himself. He shops at discount clothing stores. He also had a Nokia phone for 17 years, and only upgraded to a smart phone recently, when his Nokia one stopped working.

He is giving his entire net worth, $5.6 billion Hong Kong Dollars (that’s $714 million USD) to charity.

What a great soul, and I hope that his money is properly used by the charity of his choice.
