The Way Bill Gates Explained Why He Isn’t The World’s Most Generous Philanthropist Is Brilliant

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the largest private foundation in the U.S, with the noble aims of enhancing healthcare and reducing extreme poverty around the world. The Microsoft founder has become synonymous with philanthropy, making a pledge to give away at least half of his vast fortune to global issues such as malaria and sanitation, issues that are often ignored by governments and other organizations.
When interviewed on Norwegian talk show Skavlan, Gates was asked by the host about the most irritating myth going around about him. Now, the cynic inside you might see his response as a bit of a ‘humblebrag,’ giving him a nice opportunity to mention the $100 billion he has given away to causes in his lifetime. But it also highlights the fact that there is much more the philanthropy than simply throwing money at a problem, it requires dedication, care, and generosity of spirit as well. Bill and his wife Melinda definitely seem to know this, and it sets them apart as philanthropists in the truest sense of the word! Scroll down to see his response in full below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

  1. He's so full of it I can smell his diaper from here. Why doesn't he do something for AMERICA like house the homeless or feed the poor....or open addiction centers for FREE treatment? No, he's gotta go meddle in Africa and give them all sorts of wonderful poison vaccines to sterilize them!!! I don't call that philanthropy I call that insanity!!!

  2. "enhancing healthcare and reducing extreme poverty around the world."


    Nope if he truly did want to improve the lot of the third world for relatively few billions he could provide clean drinking water to a LOT of the third world. His networking with the other billionaires could provide the rest of the third world with clean water. The poor Africans drinking from mud pools need clean water a lot more than they need immunosupressive often deadly and very unsafe "vaccinations".



    Bill Gates the man who provided the world with clean drinking water. What an epitaph.


    Bill gates the man who poisoned the world's children. Not as good.
