You have to do some good in this world, that’s what money is for – Gremel told the Media
Mr Gremel knew that people are always going to buy medicine and cosmetics, thus he invested his money in Walgreen’s stock.
We personally take this old man as a pride, because he has clear goals regarding the environment and his duty towards it. He invested in the stock and waited for a lifetime. We hope that this old man’s spirit may inspire many young people and more people may dive into his cause. Animals and greenery are something which might not be of a benefit in a short run, but if we view things as a whole then these things play a major role in the environment and food chain.
This man resides in Chicago and his goal is to save wildlife and provide them with a good home which these animals might feel natural.
