Background Bill Gates made his fortunes with the creation of Microsoft and the graphical operating system Windows.
48% of Bill Gates of his total $61 billion in profit goes to charity. He earns $6,736 in a minute and $112 in a second. All that comes to mind when I see these numbers are: why you so rich? ლ ( ಠ _ ಠ ლ )
Some people can argue Bill Gates is too rich. Others can argue his wealth has made him lose his humility and led to him to criticize things like the American education system.
Affect on Tech Bill gates modernized computer systems for everyday use by creating the operating system known as Windows. With the creation he has made computing a lot easier, cheaper, and faster.
Philanthropy Yep, you’re reading that number right. Bill Gates has saved 5.8 million people with all the money he has donate for vaccines and he is projected to save 7.6 million children under the age of 5 by 2019.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, probably the richest foundation in the world, helps in many of the worlds wrongs. From their Millennium Gates Scholarship (what doesn’t it pay for?) to vaccines to prizes on inventing a brand new toilet design, the foundation has been promoting the geniuses of our current time and helping the world just to be an overall better place.
