From The Top Ten Distinctions Between Millionaires and The Middle Class by Keith Smith, P 88.

"Millionaires get up, do what they love, spend time with their families, donate to causes they believe in, travel to exotic places, and continually look for investments to increase  their net worth."

Could you please give the possible words that mean the same as the highlighted parts?

Hi, Izzy,

When used with "donate" or "donation," the noun "cause" refers to "an aimbelief, or organization that a group of people support or fight for," as defined by LDOCE. We can donate money to people who have different needs, each of those needs being a cause (money for the poor, for schools, for hospitals, for the sick, for refugees, etc.).

"exotic places" are places people do not usually go to, such as Hawaii.
