While it would be nice if all wealthy individuals would donate to charity, it is unfair to insist that they be made to do so. Just because they are more fortunate does not obligate them. We could all donate time or money in some fashion, yet many simply do not - should those who are less financially sound be forced to donate time?

No one should be 'forced' to do anything with their own, earned money. Would you like to be coerced into giving your money away? Why would a celebrity be any different?
