Sir Jonathan Paul Ive is a wealthy man. Experienced in business and technology, his net worth is estimated at $400 million. Unlike the common mindset when it comes to money – using it as a tool of wealth extraction, Ive is donating US $133,000 to planting orchards. Ive’s donation will fund 1,000 orchards to be planted at 1,000 schools across Britain. As inspiring, three other wealth people donated an equal amount so that there is now funding for 4,000 orchards in schools. This will transform the nation and its young people.
