Happy July 4th!
In honor of the entrepreneurial legacy of this country’s founders and pioneers, I’m celebrating the incredible impact of successful entrepreneurs Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
Buffett recently announced he is donating most of his wealth to the Gates Foundation as well as his own family’s numerous foundations. These philanthropic organizations focus on improving global health, education, reproductive health, the environment and other humanitarian issues.
The amount of Buffett’s gift – estimated to be over $30 billion – is the largest in philanthropic history.
I hope his generosity will inspire others to “give back” to the world community in whatever amounts they can best afford.
The spirit of giving is one we can celebrate today … and every day.
