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.

And in America, the people are not the only fat ones, but their animals as well.
