  • Fame & Fortune Q&A

    Bankrate: Your career is on a really grand level right now, so do you feel financially stable at this point in your life?

    Sarah Ferguson: The trouble is I give it all away to charity (laughs), and I guess that's why I'm going to go on being commercial and work as hard as I can. So the more I work, the more I give. I just gave some money to Romania ... I find these children in institutions there and I don't want mothers to have to abandon their children. I want to start a community center there for mothers to be able to stay there, so they can manage to get through the winter. I want to help the women of the Congo who are fleeing from these wars there. I want to help them so they can bring up their children. So I'm just going to keep on working.

  • Lesson learned: Work enables you to help others less fortunate than you.
