Eva Longoria & Howard G. Buffet: Most Are Farming To Feed Their Family

Posted: Updated:

Eva Longoria and Howard G. Buffett, joined us this morning…he's the son of investor Warren Buffett. Eva and Howard, and their foundations have partnered together to help some of the world's most vulnerable people - those who are hungry and lack the resources to feed themselves.

Howard has written a book about his personal story and his goals, called ‘40 Chances.'

Fun Facts About 40 Chances:(Source: Amazon)

1) Legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son in 2006, when he announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune to philanthropy. Howard G. Buffett set out to help the most vulnerable people on earth—nearly a billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard has given himself a deadline: 40 years to put more than $3 billion to work on this challenge.

2) Each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our goals in life. This is a lesson Howard learned through his passion for farming. All farmers can expect to have about 40 growing seasons, giving them just 40 chances to improve on every harvest. This applies to all of us, however, because we all have about 40 productive years to do the best job we can, whatever our passions may be.

3) 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World is a new book that captures Howard's journey. Beginning with his love for farming, we join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. It is told in a unique format: 40 stories that will provide readers a compelling look at Howard's lessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth.
