Academic giving to charity

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8360098.stm

Very generous! This university of Oxford scholar plans to give to charity anything he earns over £20,000. A very noble idea.

When I read it I just kept thinking, what happens when he has kids? Admittedly, he is a man, so he is unlikely to give up work to look after his children (I mean, I WISH I earned £20,000 a year!). But kids like things like horseriding lessons and music lessons and school trips. You can do all these things on £20, 000 but I’m not sure you can do that AND live in Oxford!!

Good luck to him though.
