NPO | Nobel Prize turns Obama into major philanthropist

The official report came yesterday regarding the decision of President Barack Obama about his decision to give away all of the $1.4 million in Nobel Prize money he received from that prestigious honor.

Given the controversy behind the story of his notoriety about winning the Nobel Prize, this charitable result of the honor may be the best remedy for the PR flap over the issue. According to this report: Republicans contended that Mr. Obama had won more for his star power and oratorical skills than for his actual achievements, and even some Democrats privately questioned whether he deserved the award. Mr. Obama, himself, maintained that he did “not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who have been honored by this prize.”
