A few years ago, Warren Buffett (the world’s 2nd richest billionaire) pledged that 99% of his wealth would go to philanthropy either during his lifetime or at his death. Now Bill Gates (world’s richest billionaire) and his wife Melinda are asking rich Americans everywhere to pledge at least 50% of their wealth to charity.
What a great and unselfish idea. What if every company gave back to the world a small percentage of its profits? Cumulatively, the impact would be huge.
I applaud you Mr. Buffett and Mr. and Mrs. Gates.
