My evil grandparents died, a year apart. My grandfather's will is a tied up mess, but each of us grandchildren got a nice monetary present from grandma. The vast bulk goes to my mother and aunt, and the two of them deserve it for putting up with the soul-destroying damage they suffered from their parents. Anyway, after a life-time of not wanting anything from my grandparents, I discovered I was quite happy to take their money. I went and blew $500 on opera CDs, choosing operas by my favourite singers and composers, half that I haven't heard before. Lakme is a new favorite. The rest of the money is going into a deep green share trust that does extremely well against the general market. I'm hoping that by the time I'm dead, it's worth donating to the course I graduated from.
I thought hard about the most effective place to donate money. Education in a poor nation is probably the answer. But I know how life changing, mind altering and mind opening that particular course is. And if it makes comparatively "wealthy" people open their eyes and see their own culture, and all other people in brand new ways, then I'm hoping this has a meaningful knock on effect. That they will be wiser with their votes and their money and their actions, and influence other "wealthy" Australians in a positive way, for being the people they are who were shaped by that course.
