Bill Gates – ultra charitable December 3, 2006

Posted by Al in : interesting,people , trackback

There are not many people in this world who can match Bill Gates for out and out wealth. And of those who come close, there are not many, if any, who can match his generosity. His charitable foundation aims to double it’s spending to $3.5Billion each year by 2009. That’s an incredible amount of money to give away to good causes. Mr Gates is stepping down from Microsoft next year to spend more time working with his charity, I wish him the very best and I hope he has a satisfying retirement and manages to get some real pleasure out of seeing his money do good. I don’t know if it makes him happy to know that the foundation reckon he, and his wife, will be dead before 2050 – as they have announced that they will spend all their money within 50 years of their deaths in order to keep the expenditure within this century.
