With a pledge to give away 95 percent of Gates’ personal wealth, the Gates Foundation claims to have granted more than $26 billion since 1994. While some of that money is devoted to improving U.S. education, roughly 75 percent goes to the poorest countries in the world, and Gates scoffs at the idea that the money would be better spent at home.
I’m liking Bill Gates more and more for the past few years. There is a point when you realize few things are important and you try to focus on them. Though not “putting a dent in the universe”, Bill is truly making a change for the better in the world. And he should be acknowledged for that.
