Warren Buffett American Hero
Warren Buffett is giving 85% of his 42 billion dollars to 5 charitable foundations, most notably the Bill and Melind Gates foundation BMG the reponse on June 25th, 2006 posted on their website:
“We are awed by our friend Warren Buffett’s decision to use his fortune to address the world's most challenging inequities, and we are humbled that he has chosen to direct a large portion of it to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation."
A large portion: Over 30 Billion dollars!!
BMG and now Mr Buffett are helping both internationally and right here at home. Their fight for a better world is centered around philanthropy and good will. Their fight has much a more realistic chance of doing good and developing good will than a fight with guns. Capitalism should walk hand in hand with Philanthropy, Mr Buffet and BMG are doing just that. Thankyou
