Millionaire Giving Away Home To Person In Need

Lifestyle | By  | 

A millionaire businessman from the U.K. is finding a creative way to pay it forward after all of his success. Marco Robinson is taking a three-bedroom flat in Fullwood, England valued at £120,000 (roughly $150,000) and donating it to a person in need free of charge.

Robinson will spend the next six weeks finding the person or family most in need of a new place to live. A local camera crew will document the process for a film that will this summer.

“It’s been hard work, but I’ve been successful in business and made a lot of money,” says Robinson. “Now I want to give something back – to give someone a lucky break like I was given when I was starting out, so that’s why I’m giving away one of my properties.”

Robinson is not a man who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised by a single mom who worked four jobs just to get by. At age 16, he had to drop out of school to get a job to help support he and his mom.

He managed to find success in real estate, only to lose his savings in the stock market. In 2008, he was broke with nothing but a car and his laptop. He then wrote the book Close the Deal & Suddenly Grow Rich, which became a best seller and helped him become the millionaire he is today.

It’s no wonder why it’s so easy for Robinson to identify with people who just need a lucky break, and why he’s so eager to pay it forward.

Robinson says that over the past 20 to 30 years, real estate prices have sky rocketed but salaries have been stagnant, making it difficult for people to own their own home. He already has a good idea of the kind of person he wants to have the home.

“The people who I want to see live in this flat are people who need a home, they need a sanctuary and some security,” he explains. “I want someone who is willing to make the effort, someone who is hard-working but who has found themselves in deep problems, not someone who’s just going to abuse this situation.”

Robinson says even after the person moves in he will help them out any way he can. “It’s not just about the flat, it’s about life,” he says. Robinson is hopeful that those like him will be inspired to follow his lead and help those in need, even if it’s just a single person or a single family.
