this is good, I wish more multi-millionaires/billionaires would donate a majority of their wealth to chairties. I don't care if it is Bill Gates' charity, it's still doing good for children and for people in need.

yea...hopefully, it won't turn out that way. But, it does seem kinda strange to give billions of dollars to another man who already has billions of dollars. But, idk.

To Me It Is Worth More When A Poor Person Gives Up A Dollar Then When A Rich Person Gives Up A Billion The Poor Person Is Giving Up There Last Dollar In Hope Of Really Helping People Even If It Wuz There Last Bit Of Money A Rich Person Gives Up Money To Show Off To Look Good To The Public Like Look At Me I Just Gave A Billion Dollars

Now worth $30 billion, the Gates foundation is one of the world's richest philanthropic organizations. It has committed millions of dollars to fighting diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis in developing countries, and to education and library technology in the United States.I cant knock a rich person for spending money to help out. I wish they all did it. But......reading this little snippet here, can anyone explain how a charity is worth $30 billion but only have spent millions, why isn't it billions? After all there's a lot of millions in a single billion, much less 29 of 'em.

Let me let you in on a little secret about Bill and Melinda Gates so-called “Foundation.” Gate’s demi-trillionaire status is based on a nasty little monopoly-protecting trade treaty called “TRIPS” – the Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights rules of the World Trade Organization. TRIPS gives Gates a hammerlock on computer operating systems worldwide, legally granting him a monopoly that the Robber Barons of yore could only dream of. But TRIPS, the rule which helps Gates rule, also bars African governments from buying AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis medicine at cheap market prices.......

Example: in June 2000, at the urging of Big Pharma, Bill Clinton threatened trade sanctions against Argentina for that nation’s daring to offer low-cost drugs to Southern Africa.

Gates knows darn well that the “intellectual property rights” laws such as TRIPS – which keep him and Melinda richer than Saddam and the Mafia combined—are under attack by Nelson Mandela and front-line doctors trying to get cheap drugs to the 23 million Africans sick with the AIDS virus. Gate’s brilliant and self-serving solution: he’s spending an itsy-bitsy part of his monopoly profits (the $6 billion spent by Gates’ foundation is less than 2% of his net worth) to buy some drugs for a fraction of the dying. The bully billionaire’s “philanthropic” organization is currently working paw-in-claw with the big pharmaceutical companies in support of the blockade on cheap drug shipments.

nah this guy deserves no props

this is the mission of the organization:

"We focus on accelerating access to existing vaccines, drugs, and other tools to fight diseases that disproportionately affect developing countries, and we support research"

their mission is to go into poor (non-white), countries and pump them full of toxic drugs to maim and sterilize, meanwhile bringing lots of business to pharmaceutical companies back home and at the same time masking themselves as "humanitarians"

HIV/AIDS is all hype... thats why they hype it up so much, because if they didn't people would forget about it because it is not real

if they cared about health, they would be giving these poor countries food and water... all that is necessary to be perfectly healthy

Obviously, "philanthropy" is big business.

When I saw this on the news it was at a press conference.
The media covers a press conference
The subject(s) at hand initiates it

It's not a matter of showing off
But rather to get the word out, to help further the cause

well he had to tell the press what he did with his money. because everyones gonna realises where did 30billion dollars from this mans bank account go to?? it was gonna come out sometime. you cant just hide transaction with such a large sum of money. and plus warren buffet being a great investor people follow his invesments and see what he does with his money. once they realise 30billion is gone they gonna say oh shit this man has finally lost his money. cause warren buffet got his money from telling people how to invest in the stock markets cause he was soo good at it. so everyone who invests money invest in the same company as he did. this man will make money if he invests in a cornershop, because everyone else will also invest in the same cornershop.
