You should have checked before you wrote this.<quoted text>Bill Gate is one of the richest people on Earth who happens to be Atheist. He is considered a philanthropist. I say he is somewhat philanthropic but not truly giving as perceived. With just one swipe of a pen he could end hunger for millions of people, yet he chooses not to. Do you realize how many people could be fed with 70 billion dollars and he would still have 2 billion left. That is still more money than anyone ever needs in a lifetime. So much for that atheist help??
Bill and his wife have given 28 billion dollars to charity in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The primary aims of the foundation are, globally, to enhance healthcare and reduce extreme poverty, and in America, to expand educational opportunities and access to information technology.
