Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates discusses philanthropy

Bill-GatesMarking his recent appearance on ‘Idol Gives Back,’ Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, accompanied by his wife Melinda, largely discussed philanthropy with the American Idol host Ryan Seacrest – focusing chiefly on the charitable endeavors of his “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.”

Despite the fact that Bill Gates charitable efforts largely comprise the hardly pragmatic crap, his attempts over the ten years or so are, in fact, worthy of appreciation. The key goals of his Foundation include battling malaria, eradicating polio, inoculating children, and improving schools.
