WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: Amassing wealth and then using it to save the world is what makes Richard Goldman one haute philanthropist. 2009 marked the 20th anniversary of the Goldman Environmental Prize, and Al Gore came to San Francisco on Earth Day to award the six recipients with this top honor that recognizes activists for significant efforts to protect the environment, often at great personal risk. Each winner receives an award of $150,000, the largest award in the world for grassroots environmentalists.
