If you were a rich man, would you do this? As a rich man, Bill Gates can do anything with his money. This is the man who founded Microsoft through his vision and determination to build a universal system in which everyone could use. This man worked tirelessly towards making the software, that we all take for granted, in most computers today.
However, is this what he’ll be remembered for or is it this? The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation! For the past several years now, Bill and his wife, Melinda, have worked tirelessly to promote this foundation. The foundation’s global aim is to enhance healthcare and reduce poverty.
Added to this foundation is a trustee, Warren Buffet. Warren Buffet is an outstanding American business magnate who lives a humble life. These two powerful and rich people intend to leave their money to help mankind’s future. Bill and Warren have stated that they will give over 95% of their wealth to charities.
Together they have challenged the youths of today, and the future, to tackle the hard problems that are facing the world. The world has changed, the problems no longer affect us as an individual but as a race. Planting the seeds in today’s youths so that people can grow together and create a better humanity for future generations.
If you’re Bill Gates or Warren Buffet, would you do this? I believe they have reached a stage in their lives where they now measure richness not by the mighty dollar but through of helping people. Only time will tell if they will succeed in changing people’s way of thinking. How do you think the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation can create a better humanity?
