Charity to the next level…

As much flack as Bill Gates always gets from the Microsoft hater camp, such as depicting him as the devil etc. it can not be denied that Bill has donated more money to charity than ANYBODY in history!  The glowing example of course is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which is currently about $30,000,000,000.00 strong… that’s right… THIRTY BILLION DOLLARS!  Show me ANY of the other CEO’s that compete with Microsoft that has donated even 1/10th of that… there aren’t any!
Now, investment mogul Warren Buffet has added his weight behind the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well.  This article has more:

The point being that Buffet’s donation will, over 20 years, double the foundation’s funds.  Of course, at the current rate of donation Bill is going to double it over that period as well so we may be looking at a 90 Billion dollar charitable foundation by then.
Say what you will, there is simply no denying Bill Gates’ philanthropy…
