* If we both go at the same time, there's a "guardian" for our pets and $$ designated to take care of them.* Some to relatives, the rest to a scholarship program at my alma mater...

Re: Where Will Your Money Go When You're Done With It

Being early retired in my mid 30's, I probably have a different will from most of you.* My will is not intended to for death by natural causes, but rather it's in place in case I die early.*

I'm sure it will change over time, but for now it says that my money will go in equal parts to each of my nuclear family members and "a charity contribution determined by beneficiaries".* Outside the will I wrote up some instructions for choosing a charity, basically saying that it should be something that reflects my values and past giving patterns.* *By keeping it open ended like that, I don't have to update the will every time my charity interests change.

If I were to get hit by a bus today, the money might be split among:
  • Some small regional organizations that work to keep the government from charging entrance fees for hiking in our public lands
  • Oxfam
  • San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness
  • My alma mater
  • ACLU and EFF
*

Probably to my niece and nephew. My sister and I have probably generated more net worth than several generations before us. IE my family heritage has been poor for a long time Anyways maybe we will turn that around for future generations of our "clan"

I am offended by this. Most religions are rapidly moving towards more permissive behavior than I would tolerate in my own house. I like to feel superior.

What about the Norse gods? Thor could use a new hammer. Freija is pretty hot. Odin can't hold his liquor and passes out at every banquet.
