Bill Gates turns up the volume on the I-Pod of Charity

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:21 pm

Bill and Melinda Gates are upping their donations in 2009 by just a smidge . . . only about $500 Million.  

The Gates’ say their charitable fund lost 20% of its value in the recent economic crash, but as incredibly wealthy people they see it as their duty to help even more during these times of crisis.  The Gates Foundation, which was worth 35.1 Billion on October 1st, gave out $3.3 Billion in 2008.  There are no guarantees they will be able to maintain or increase further in 2010.

Betcha feel even better about buying that I-Pod now, eh?
