Oracle of Omaha's sister to talk about 'Giving it all Away'

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- After inheriting millions of dollars, one woman is giving it all away. Literally.

Philanthropist Doris Buffett (yes, her brother is Warren Buffett) inherited money from a family trust fund in 1996. Instead of keeping the money for herself, the 82-year-old is giving all her money away.

The book is about her journey while helping those who cannot help themselves. She will be in the Port City Friday to talk about it at a Cape Fear Literacy Council luncheon. Organizers say Buffett is the perfect woman for the job.

"We understand about giving it away, giving our time, our talent, our treasure and to see someone with so much to give away and she doesn't have to, but she does. That's what's really important," Rachel Forman said.

At this fun event for a great cause, Doris Buffett will talk about "Giving It All Away" her fascinating life and struggles in her biography as written by author Michael Zitz.

Hello where can I get an application to get some of the money Ms. Buffet is giving away to poor folks that REALLY need it ?

...to my family.

This oh-so-trendy idea of giving it away and not to your kids is nutty. (Unless, of course, you hate your kids.)

I already pay quite enough taxes that are given to the incompetent, lazy, and stupid. I don't have to give them additional direct cash subsidies.
