Ted Turner is a legend. He’s a media mogul and a philanthropist. He’s the founder of the Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) which launched CNN, the first 24-hour cable news channel. He pioneered the superstation concept in television.
He has given $1 billion to the UN who created the UN Foundation, of which he’s chairman of. In 2001, he co-founded the Nuclear Threat Initiative. This is a non-partisan organization dedicated to preventing the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. He is co-chairman of this organization too. On top of all that, he is the second largest landowner in America owning over 2 million acres.1
Below are the ’11 voluntary initiatives” he wrote in his autobiography “Call Me Ted.” I found them wonderful. It’s the constitution of a giver.
