He did not have a family car, meals usually take the bus, and occasionally take a taxi. His office and the luxury not suffer orgy, the portable briefcase just a simple bag. He loved food, but the favorite is cheap grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches, hang his head in his mouth: "You may be on the high-end restaurants, spent $ 100 for a meal; However, eating meals of the kind of $ 25 to my satisfaction. "run out of food in a restaurant, he will carefully check the bill. He earnestly warned children of their own, when you go to bed to turn off the desk lamp.

He founded the Atlantic Charitable Foundation has $ 8 billion, in order to avoid the disclosure requirements of the Foundation in the United States, he transferred to the Foundation to Bermuda away from the United States to register. The Foundation does not use Chuck Feeney, and with his name, and he even asked the staff not to tell yourself where you work. Demanding requirements of the recipient institutions are not allowed to place a nameplate. Beneficiaries mostly do not know the source of funds, insiders must sign a confidentiality agreement, funding will automatically stop if revealed to the outside world.
Until 1997, Chuck Feeney, duty-free shopping chain is the acquisition of the French luxury jewelry magnate Bernard Arnault, the public learned that Feeney in the company's shares have been handed over to the Atlantic Charitable Foundation an ordinary old man's donation amount has exceeded Foundation established the famous the MacArthur Rockefeller family.

Once in the waiting room of a hospital, he saw a little girl ready to undergo surgery, the girl hand over his mouth, could not conceal his excitement and expectations, it seems that announced to the world that I could not before you see that ugly to look up! Presence of Fini moved, this time I think that wealth is valuable. "
After another, in a restaurant, a man saw Chuck Feeney, and quickly came to embrace him excitedly said that I was the general manager of this restaurant chain, my studies are subject to the completion of the funding 's. Chuck Feeney heard here, said: "This is the happiest thing in my life."
    
The Chuck Feeney likes to walk around all over the world, choose a charity project. He smiled and told reporters: the Atlantic charitable fund "There 40 billion dollars waiting for donors, if this money is not spent, my death will not rest in peace.
    
The media asked him: Why do you have to donate the money go?
    
He replied: heaven without money!
    
And so the realm of people living in the same era, the soul of those of us who keep his nose clean generation will inevitably be tortured, I do not know how to before "rot" successor corrupt officials!
