Biggest Donation in History
I normally try to refrain from posting content not related to the topics covered by this blog, but this news is too wonderful to pass up.
Warren Buffett – second richest person in the world after Bill Gates – is giving roughly 83% of his stock in Berkshire, which is currently about $31 billion, to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. An additional 2%, which is about $6 billion, is going to other charity foundations, including those run by Buffett’s three children. This is not only good news for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and those other charities to receive such a large donation, but to all the people that will benefit from the Gateses and Warren Buffett himself.
