The Gates's have been very involved in world health for many years.  They also signed a pledge with many other billionaires such as Warren Buffett and Sheryl Sandberg to donate the bulk of their wealth to charitable causes.  


@Linmo- Michael Bloomberg is part of that pledge as well. Very generous people in this world.

His Foundation, which is a legit one, focuses on health care - emerging disease and prevention.  They have access to amazing information and they

have donated way beyond usual ‘gifting’ percentages of most people.

All of us can do our part in some small way even if we're not Bill Gates.  For those who are able to, please support your local small businesses by purchasing a gift card or doing some early online Christmas shopping with all of the discounts currently available at online retailers like QVC and Nordstrom.  For all of us, please stay at home and let our frontline healthcare and emergency first responders focus on those who most need their attention right now.

When you have billions of dollars, the right to do is donate some of your money for a crisis.  And, we are in a crisis.  Thank you to the Gates for their kind, generous donation.

The Gates have always been like that.  I can only imagine the amount of money thy have given over the years to so many causes.  One of the few scrupulous billionaires out there.
