Ed Sheeran’s Philanthropic Heart

Ed Sheeran’s estimated net worth is nearly 68 million. You would think that kind of success would be his proudest accomplishment, but he sees things very differently.

 “It’s like, earn a penny, spend a penny with me. As soon as it comes in, it goes out. I don’t have that much value on it. I have more value on my friends and family being OK. A lot of my money goes to charity or to children’s hospitals near where I live.”  says Ed.

You see he is a philanthropist first. Music is his talent and helping others is his calling.

 “I have enough to be comfortable and the rest goes to help people.”

Here is his amazing story of overcoming being bullied, and choosing to live a life of significance. What decisions can you make today to multiply good in the world?
