If I remember correctly.. When he dies his children will NOT be recieving all of his money... instead it will be dontated to organizations around the world.. Of course they will get some but not all!

I think it is a great thing for someone who has that much money to do something productive with it instead of just allowing it to site in a bank account some where in the world.

i though it was like 1 to 3 billion each

maybe he has changed his mind and only millions now

but yeah we all agree he is not giving his all money to the kids

good idea

few millions is enough to get ur self a degree in a university and find a job

Yeah didn't Gates give more to africa than the U.N.

Imagine the bragging rights

Gates sittin around with his buddies in a bar

naw man i gave more money to africa than the U.N you know i was like damn someone doesnt have windows now there has to be something done there. So i wrote a check for the same amount that the U.N. did so we can one day see these people with a windows cell phone.
