Banker Gives $60 Million to His Employees

How nice it was to find some happy news in these trying times. The media does not talk about the good stuff most of the time.

Leonard Abess Jr. deserves major kudos. He sold his bank in Miami and gave $60 million of his own money to his current and former employees! No, I'm not kidding. Read the story--it will make you feel good. What an amazingly generous guy!

"Sharing the wealth with staffers came naturally. Abess and his wife, Jayne, have long been big contributors to local organizations, such as the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and Mount Sinai Medical Center." - Probably a Jew...and I wonder if the media will attribute that properly as they most often do with doom and gloom stories.!!!
