The world's second richest man - who's now worth $44 billion - tells editor-at-large Carol Loomis he will start giving away 85% of his wealth in July - most of it to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
I know I seem to be pretty much animal focused in my thinking and concerns, but I do let the people news sink in from time to time. I recently read a Time
(or was it Newsweek
?) article about the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
and was absolutely in awe of what they have accomplished. They have proven that, if you're filthy rich and want
to make a difference for good, you can. Pretty impressive.
