Ted Turner talks philanthropy with Piers Morgan

May 14, 2012 BY Amy DiElsi


In case you missed it, United Nations Foundation Chairman and Founder Ted Turner recently interviewed with CNN’s Piers Morgan about his career, life, and commitment to global philanthropy. We were excited to hear Ted talk about his historic gift that created the UN Foundation, our successful Nothing But Nets campaign, and his involvement in the Giving Pledge. 

As part of the conversation, Piers recognized Ted as a leader in philanthropy who has inspired others to give back.  Watch a clip from the interview,

We’re grateful for Ted’s vision and leadership to create a platform where individuals can contribute their time and resources to help the UN create a better world. How has Ted inspired you to give back?
