Andrew Carnegie was one of Scotland greatest industrialists. He was also one of worlds first true philanthropists and his name is now known world wide due to his giving and generosity. Even to this day his legacy lives on with millions of pounds still being distributed annually to fund education and poverty reduction.

Now we know that today’s business owners may not have that kind of cash to throw around but you can still do your bit to help end poverty in your area.
