BILL GATES

 

 

Bill Gates has donated 4.6 billion dollars to charity recently and this is the highest amount of money paid to charity organizations so far in this year.

Bill Gates and his wife have donated 35 million dollars to charitable organizations since 1994. He has always been a pioneer in donating charities and any human rights activities and it has been said that so far he has given away 64 million of his Microsoft company’s share to the mentioned sections.

This is the biggest amount ever that has been paid to charity organizations since the foundation of Bill and Melinda Gates. It is not yet known what organization has received the donation but it is thought to be the Bill and Melinda Gates charity organization that was founded in 2005 to help the poor and needy people around the world.

The donation of 4.6 billion dollars has been the biggest give away money this year so far. Warren Buffett also another donor has helped the Bill and Melinda Gates charity about 3.2 million dollars.

Warren Buffett and Bill Gates have signed a pledge under the name of “giving pledge” to give half of their capital to charity each year.

So far 170 rich people have signed the pledge.

 

A small Bill Gates’ biography:

Bill Gates was born on October 28, 1955, in Seattle, Washington. He has two other sisters and had a very warm and friendly family. Bill had a very close relationship with his mother, Mary, who after a brief career as a teacher devoted her time to helping raise the children and working on civic affairs and with charities.

Gates enrolled at Harvard University in the fall of 1973, originally thinking of a career in law. But eventually, he dropped out of the college to pursue his business, Microsoft, with Paul Allen.

In 1987 when he was 32, he fell in love with a 23-year-old Microsoft product manager named Melinda French. They got married on January 1st, 1994 in Hawaii and just a few months after his wedding his mother died of breast cancer.

Bill and Melinda have three children, Jennifer (born in 1996), Rory (born in 1999) and Phoebe (born in 2002 ).

In 1975, Bill Gates and Paul Allen formed Micro-Soft, a blend of "microcomputer" and "software" (they dropped the hyphen to Microsoft within a year). Although the company started out on shaky footing, by 1979 Microsoft was grossing approximately $2.5 million, and, at the age of 23, Gates placed himself as the head of the company.\
