Excellent guess dinny but no, these people are not Quakers.

Give a helping hand but "we're not Mother Teresa"

(this might have been a bad choice for cryptic. These people aren't famous but have been in the news for an unusual act of generosity)

Nope, not that entrepreneur dinny. This group of people aren't famous - but they had more than most. Downsizing helped some on the gold coast. Ray Charles might help you find where these peaches are from.

I want to give you a little credit here Tony without misleading you. There is a charity involved but that's not what you should focus on. This group of people did something unusual and then that's when the charity came in. Here's a no kidding hint - this group of people is actually a family. They did something few would do and donated half to charity.

Georgia

Perhaps Alwen can help.

Let me know if you want to keep guessing or for me to give you the answer. I think this one might be too difficult because these people are not famous. The father and daughter wrote a book about what the family did and why they did it, but I don't think many know about them.
The girl's first and last name can be found in the clues.

Good one Eileen I saw the hidden name. Hannah Salwen..a remarkable family. They sold their home for $2million and gave $1 million to help those in need and they didn't have to look far as they came across homeless on their drive through their neighbourhood. The mother had a $ 500.000 job, she gave it up to be a local teacher with a small wage. Hannah's father gave up his big job too.They should be VERY famous. Thanks for letting us know about them Eileen.Hannah was the ONE who was was willing to give up too.The family is also involved in many charities
