“When Peter Buffett was 19 years old, he inherited $90,000 in stock — no more, no less. That isnt exactly a small sum, but when you consider that Buffetts father — billionaire investor Warren Buffett — is one of the richest people in the world, that inheritance starts to look a little skimpy.”
NOTE FROM DAVID LEWIS – When I heard this interview on WUOT this morning (May 6, 2010) I was moved to share it. You can listen via Buffetts Lasting Legacy: Immaterial Wealth : NPR.

Volunteer Health Program Physicians
February 26 through March 6, 2009, I was in Dominican Republic with this group of doctors – Volunteer Health Program. Most of us can remember that was just a few days before the stock markets finally reached their low point. It was a tough decision to go. Yet, it has been one of my most moving experiences from 2009. In the “long term,” those days, watching these people work so hard to help so many, will probably be even more important to me than the market rally since I returned. Now, Volunteer Health Program is working on logistics to extend their 2010 Dominican Republic work to include Haitians. For our friends who may want to help, you may contact me at email@example.com.
NEW YORK, NY, — While many were on a spring break, some 57 volunteer health professionals including staff from the Continuum Health Partners, Inc., went on a week-long mission to provide eye care and surgery at the Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC) mission in Licey, Dominican Republic, a small town outside of Santiago.
The team saw 986 indigent patients and assisted 14 surgeons with 223 surgeries during the week, especially for conditions related to working outdoors without eye protection.
