    Α bored billionaire's widow who consider herself philanthropist. Superyacht & yoga, jets & natural foods, mansions' collection & dozen of charitable initiatives. Her husband's company stole tens of billions of taxes from Europe countries and make the widow billionaire. The stolen money will return in the society as a charity by the noble lady, when she isn't busy buying or building new mansions, find new crews for super yacht and jets, organize new cruises around the world. She's a very busy philanthropist.
    The act of giving is what makes one a philanthropist, no matter how much you may resent it. She has gone on record as saying she will donate their vast wealth and it won't stay in the family from generation to generation as we see in so many other super-wealthy families (Waltons, etc). So for you to be pissed at her, rather than them, is idiotic. 

    Sure he built a yacht, but their primary residence wasn't a mansion at all, it was a normal house on the street that you could walk your dog by. I don't know what other houses they may or may not have. Do you? Can you provide links?

    “The saddest thing about his life and death is that he didn’t come to know Christ Jesus as his Lord and Savior”

    Steve Jobs was raised in a Christian home:  “Steven Paul” Jobs is kind of a tell. He rejected that faith and spent more than a small portion of his life seeking or practicing various non-Christian faiths.

    Like a lot of us, we were raised in it and found it wanting. The fastest growing segment of the American population are people who practice no organized faith and most of us recognize no singular person as a deity.
