“Great wealth brings incredible, enormous responsibility to give back to the society. People of USA want their money to have the greatest impact on improving the lives of the people”.
Business Barons Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are encouraging other billionaires in America and abroad to give away the bulk of their fortunes to philanthropic causes. As of February 2011, 58 billionaires have joined the Giving Pledge Campaign. The charitable contribution amounts to $ 600 billion.
We have been blessed with good fortune beyond our wildest expectations, and we are profoundly grateful. But just as these gifts are great, so we feel a great responsibility to use them well. That is why we are so pleased to join in making an explicit commitment to the “Giving pledge”, feels the donors. If this campaign succeeds, it could change the face of philanthropy.
Making a difference in people’s lives- and seeing it with your own eyes – is perhaps the most satisfying thing you’ll ever do. If you want to fully enjoy life – GIVE. If you have enormous , give of your wealth…if you have little, give of your heart.
HATS OFF!! Bill Gates and warren Buffet for showing exemplary leadership for a social cause.
