  • Absolutely, the world needs more kindness

    The fact that he did this is extremely commendable! We certainly need more acts of philanthropy in this hate, and war filled world.
    He's giving up his own, hard-earned money to help people that are more in need of it than he is. If you can help someone, or many people out, why wouldn't you?

  • That was very nice of him.

    Yes acts like this should be more common but they also need to be regulated. Those families need to go through proper security checks, it just takes one bad apple to ruin everything for everyone. Nevertheless, it was an extremely generous gesture on Mr. Estill's part and the world needs more people like him.

  • Kindness creates more kindness

    I love hearing stories like that. Such generosity is heartwarming and inspiring. People who have the resources and can use them for good definitely have an impact on those around them. I think pay it forward does happen, and I hope more folks will be inspired to be like Jim Estill.

  • Yes act like those of Jim Estill should be more common

    The members of our society have be fortunate enough to have earned, or otherwise been gifted with, large amounts of money have the moral responsibility to give back to the rest of the world community. When you have more money than you can ever spend it should be used for the betterment of humanity.

  • I think there should be more acts of kindness in the world

    It is good to see when millionaires use their economic power to show acts of kindness and generosity towards those less fortunate. Our society glamourizes the CEO, celebrity and star athletes who make more money than most of us will ever see in a lifetime. It's refreshing to know some of them can show generosity.
