Philanthropist Bill Pulte Gives Away $10,000 on Twitter

A veteran and his daughter are moving out of homelessness thanks to Pulte and everyone that raised awareness of his offer on Twitter.


Philathropist Bill Pulte awarded $10,000 on Twitter last week to the worthiest cause he could find.

Pulte asked his followers to retweet him and for anyone to comment with a worthy cause that he should give $10,000 to on July 2nd.

After earning nearly 9,000 retweets, likes and comments Bill announced the winner of the Twitter contest: Gretchen Smith of Code of Vets, a group dedicated to helping American veterans, and a special veteran she nominated. After hearing she won the contest, Gretchen Smith released a Periscope thanking Bill Pulte.

Code of Vets announced the $10,000 would go to help veteran Robert P. and his daughter Megan. Smith says the money will permanently move the veteran out of homelessness.
