A worthy cause, and I am sure he can do it again every month if he so chooses...good for him.

This is a very impressive use of his wealth! It makes me think twice about grouping them all together as generally greedy and underhanded, which is certainly how they seem during oil negotiations. Thanks, Tom.

"grouping them all together as generally greedy and underhanded, which is certainly how they seem during oil negotiations" - which 'them' would that be? didn't see the usa mentioned in the article...

That would be, Chris, how the oil barons of Abu Dhabi act during worldwide oil pricing.

I personally don't care were the money comes from as long as they get it:)
Thank you Tom

Do you think we could get him to donate to save our horses since in a way he's part of the problem?

Thoroughbred horse racing
Sheikh Mohammed is a major figure internationally in Thoroughbred horse racing and breeding. In late 1981, he purchased Gainsborough Stud at Woolton Hill, near Newbury, Berkshire, England. In Ireland, he also owns Ballysheehan Stud, in County Tipperary plus he has Gainsborough Farms Inc. in Versailles, Kentucky. His racing operations includes the ownership of Darley Stables and he is the leading partner in his family's Godolphin Stables. Sheikh Mohammed hosts the Dubai World Cup, the world's richest series of horse races.

In England, his horses have won numerous important Group One races including several of the British Classic Races. His horses have also won the Irish Derby Stakes and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and in the United States the 2006 Preakness Stakes with Bernardini.

He recently bought the Woodlands Stud empire, the largest in Australia, for $US 420 million

Well done, good on you mate, shame there's not a few more like you!
You've just taken a few steps up the ladder in my estimation of you.
Let's just hope now the money actually gets to do the good it's intended to and reaches those who can and will use it to the best of their ability in the aid of animal welfare. I'll buy you a pint when I see you next!
