Why giving away our wealth has been the most satisfying thing we've done… | Bill and Melinda Gates

n 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates—then engaged—took a walk on a beach in Zanzibar, and made a bold decision on how they would make sure that their wealth from Microsoft went back into society. In a conversation with Chris Anderson, the couple talks about their work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as about their marriage, their children, their failures and the satisfaction of giving most of their wealth away.

  1. And the slide with deaths of children under 5 motivated Gates to depopulate earth? You wanna play god to reducing earth population? Have you sponsored the Georgia Guidestones?

  2. I don’t understand why people have so many horrible conspiracies about these people???? SOMEONE EXPLAIN WITH SOME PROOF

  3. Bill and Melinda Gates , May God bless you more and more . You both personify this poem that I read somewhere n I quote “ I SHALL PASS THRU THIS WORLD BUT ONCE, IF THERE BE ANY KINDNESS OR GOODNESS I CAN DO, LET ME NOT DEFER IT NOR NEGLECT IT, FOR I SHALL NOT PASS THIS WAY AGAIN. Praying for both of you and your family .🙏

  4. I had tears when I can see how Melinda Gates can come down and open doors for the poor childern to reach their personal milestone in education..Nothing more but heaven for you. In my counry PNG, in a very remote area , I invested some money to built a library in 2014 its semi bush material type building but I can't stock library books after the building was completed 5 years ago due to financial constrains. I am still struggling but will acomplish that soon. Its not only rich people can do it , generouse things that one may do must come from your heart. That is what God wants.
