Austrian millionaire gives away his £2.7m fortune... because 'they never made me happy'
Posted February 11, 2010 at 5:14 pm

An Austrian millionaire is giving away his fortune and all his personal possessions because 'they never made me happy.'
Karl Rebeder, 47, from Linz, claims he will use the money from his household accessory business - worth £2.7 million - to fund orphanages and other help-the-poor projects in South America.
'I had the idea on holiday in Hawaii some years ago,' he said.

'My cars and plane have already gone and the rest follows very soon. I can't wait to be free of them.
'Since the sale of my company in 2004 I have been supporting several orphanage projects in central and South America.
'From this developed, less than a year ago, a greenhouse project which gives orphans the possibility to have agricultural training, to take up a small loan in order to make themselves independent vegetable growers.

'I set up a new non-profit micro-credit organisation to distribute these small loans to help these poor but industrious people.'
He told Austrian TV viewers of his plan to raffle his luxury Tyrol villa by lots - with all money going to the mymicrocredit.com foundation he started late last year - and shedding his fortune on the Stoeckl am Samstag chat-show programme, presented by Barbara Stoeckl, in an interview due to be broadcast in May.
The blurb for her show says; 'One of the central topics of the programme is relief actions, which portrays people who are actively involved in the humanitarian sector.

'Karl Rabeder is one of them and was therefore invited by Barbara Stoeckl to talk about his current and future plans in her show on May 16th.'
The luxury villa with breathtaking views over 'Sound of Music' countryside is being raffled for £1.3 million.

Rabeder claims he is happy living in a small flat and surviving on the equivalent of £800 a month.
'My then-wife and I were on the plane together coming back from Hawaii in 2004 and I realised that I was dying through consumerism,' he recalled.

'It has taken me until now to realise that I don't need money and possessions.
'I learned as a child the value of money and how to get by without it.'
Rabeder's father was a painter, his mother an office worker.

He founded his first company in 1986 and soon became rich, adding; 'I thought the more money I had the happier I would become, but it was not the case.'
He now lives in a two-room flat in Innsbruck, is divorced and added; 'The worst that can happen to me is that I have to take a small job to get by.'

It is unclear how his immediate family feels about his philanthropy.
