Something Awesome

Check this out.

An anonymous donor gave a hundred million dollars to the Erie Community Foundation in Erie, Pennsylvania, USA, to be distributed among forty-six charities. The city itself only has 102,000 people, but it's horribly depressed -- one of many formerly-prosperous industrial cities which has fallen on hard times in recent years. The donor worked with the Foundation for years to identify where the money would go.

This is an incredible donation for a community which needs it very badly. This is a great thing for someone to have done, and the fact that they're not looking to milk it for publicity and back-pats just makes it that much better. :)
