Gates' foundation is pretty widespread and is the most philanthropic in the country. Buffett specifically gave it to the Gates foundation because was sure it would go to the right causes and organizations.
When it comes to charity, it's not the charities that benefit, but those receiving it. I personally believe quite strongly in what the Gates Foundation does; saving lives, helping those less fortunate, feeding the hungry, vaccinating the sick and improving educations here at home.
The Gates' Foundation is probably the only charity organization that can even handle the huge influx of money.
I suppose. Isn't basically everyone else less fortunate than Gates??
