Philanthropic Friday!

Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, meets with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon during the 63rd United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters in New York September 25, 2008 where he announced a donation of $168 million dollars for malaria vaccines research.

I didn't know zeros went that high! But, I'm glad they do. And, I'm glad the megabillionaire is giving his funds away to causes like this versus something stupid like building an island.
