Target: Barron Hilton, American business mogul
Goal: Thank Barron Hilton for donating Paris Hilton’s inheritance to charity
Barron Hilton, billionaire and former co-chairman of the Hilton Hotel chain, has announced designs to leave the vast majority of his fortune to their family-owned charity. Upon his death, what is now $2.5 billion will be donated to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, an organization providing funding for poverty-stricken areas in America and around the world. Thank Hilton for an extraordinary commitment that will provide hope for impoverished communities many years into the future.
Contrary to the image Paris Hilton embodies, philanthropy is in fact part of her family tradition. Founded by Barron’s father Conrad and named in his honor, The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation’s work providing drinking water, disaster relief, education, and homes in developing countries is only the tip of an altruistic iceberg. In leaving a large portion of his estate to charity, Barron is following his father’s footsteps. There is, however, a big difference in the wills of these two moguls. Although it was Conrad who created the foundation, his son has pledged to donate much more — a whopping 97% — of his estate to it than his father did.
The reason given for this broad stroke of generosity is that Paris has done so much to sully the Hilton name and so embarrassed her grandfather Barron that he feels the inheritance must go to a more noble cause. In what is truly a bizarre stroke of irony, the rotten conduct of an aggrandized diva has resulted in one of the largest charitable donations in recent history.
Regardless of extenuating circumstances, the multi-billion dollar donation will do wonders for impoverished communities the whole world over. Non-profit organizations can now look forward to a large jump in funds provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation upon the death of the founder’s son. Sign this petition and thank Barron Hilton for his monumentally generous pledge.
