France's Billionaires Haven't Paid Any of the Money They Promised to Help Rebuild Notre Dame

Following the tragic fire that devastated part of Notre Dame in April of this year, donations to rebuild the national monument  poured in. You probably remember the links and posts that were shared all over social media. The cathedral means so much to so many, and so people from all over the world jumped at the chance to contribute to its repair.

The only people who didn't donate? France's wealthiest set. According to Bloomberg News, who consulted church and business officials, "the billionaire French donors who publicly proclaimed they would give hundreds of millions to rebuild Notre Dame have not yet paid a penny toward the restoration of the French national monument."
