ABC News: Why Bill Gates Is Giving Away His Fortune
So this is why Bill Gates Is Giving Away His Fortune. I hope ABC doesn't move this link. It is an enlightening (if somewhat superficial) look at why Bill Gates put so much money toward charity. I read an article in Time (I think) a couple of years ago about Bill's charity. I was pleasantly surprised to see that he was not a stingy rich man or an uninvolved philanthopist. He seems truly concerned about these issues and sees his fortune as a way to make a difference. He is also concerned about the effect of too much wealth on his children. Fascinating. I do not know much about him, but from what I have seen, I am, as I said before, pleasantly suprised.
