Richness is measured by not what you have but what you can give.

History has recorded so many rich people that turned philanthropist in their old age.

Have you heard that William Gates, the richest person in the world has declared that he is going to retire from active business by 2008 and spend the rest of his life as well the fortune to the development of the world?

I think he might have been influenced by such predecessors like George Lindemann Sr. Homes who for the past five years, has been an active and influential philanthropist and supporter of the Miami Arts Community.

George Lindemann who also features in the Forbes' list of the world's billionaires is the present chief of natural gas company Southern Union, plus owns 19 Spanish-language radio stations.

His illustrious career in the society as a member of the Board of Directors of the Miami-Dade Performing Arts Center Foundation 2002-2004, as a Member of the Miami Art Museum Exhibition Committee, as a Trustee of the Miami Art Museum etc makes him one of the eminent personalities in the history of Florida.

His early business activities were in the field of soft contact lenses, vision cable and mobile phone.

Currently, he is the general manager of B.C. Property Investments, L.C. a pioneer in redeveloping office space on Biscayne Boulevard.
