Today's the birthday of Bill Gates,
Not one of Dame Fortune's ingrates.
A humanitarian with a Microsoft heart*
He's raised his philanthropy into an art.
*Gates has given over $36 billion to various causes and charities. He has even pledged with fellow Forbes Richest 400 Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg , Facebook CEO , to donate half their wealth for charitable work.
Author's Note: I have a very personal reason for choosing the Gates' photo above: my daughters-in-law, Katie and Toni, think it looks a lot like me. Which probably falls in the category of looks can be deceiving.
