High-dollar giving is 'contagious' -

High-dollar giving is 'contagious' - "What made T. Boone Pickens, oilman, corporate raider and hedge fund billionaire, go from giving away mere millions to donating hundreds of millions?

'It's pretty easy: I made more money,' says Pickens, who earned the No. 8 spot on the list of the most generous Americans with donations of $172 million last year. 'I had it to give away. And I have figured out I can't take it with me. So why not give it and see the results instead of leaving it and never knowing what happens to it?'"
