Bravo to both Melinda and Bill Gates...........
I just wish he had made some trips before this...The interest alone on his billions, could have saved over a million children's lives.
He did not need that interest sitting in investments or spending it on partying.
Rich or poor, very few people are concerned with the children of the world's children and there is no prompting for graduates to go and explore the problems even if the Peace Corps does not have the proper fundings any more.
And in America, the people are not the only fat ones, but their animals as well.
DISGUSTING.
