Scott Neeson former president of 20th Century Fox International, sold his mansion, Porsche, and yacht and left the industry to establish and personally oversee Cambodian Children's Fund as Executive Director.

I remember watching an interview with him in which he told a story of how a phone call with a celebrity made him devote his life to the CCF.
He was in Cambodia, outside of a Phnom Penh, at a landfill, and he was brought to some sick children dying of typhoid. He was with them when he got an international call from a celebrity that he had asked to do publicity for the foundation, who was angry about how something was wrong with their private jet. The celebrity then told him "Scott, my life was never meant to be this difficult". What the celebrity actually said wasn't mere complaining, it revealed an attitude of extreme self-importance. 


  1. You really have to admire him. To give up all that he had and go help these people is just amazing, and if more people helped out like he is, maybe the world would be a better place to live. Thanks for sharing this, it makes me have hope.

  2. Thanks for posting this LInda, I really needed to hear about something good. There is hope for our messed up crooked world; It puts things into perspective.

  3. Kudos to Mr Neeson. The world would indeed be a much better place with more people like him in it that care more about human beings than their own self importance, minor incoveniences and all of their "stuff".

  4. Its nice to know someone would do this. He will get his reward .
