He was a millionaire in his early 30s. Karl Rabeder from Austria made a fortune making candles. He later took part in world championship competition as a glider pilot but it wasn't until he visited a South American orphanage that he realized his true vocation.He's now been working exclusively as an aid worker for several years. The planes and the limousines were sold off long ago. Now he's selling off his villa by lottery. 300 square meters with a view of the Inn Valley and the mountains. Price per ticket: 99 Euro. As for Rabeder himself, he manages to live on a fraction of his former income.
