The year's other billion-dollar-club members include No. 1 givers Bill and Melinda Gates, the world's largest international donors, who made history
this year by giving their estimated $3 billion Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT - News) dividend to their foundation. It's one of the largest donations
in history by a living donor. To put it into perspective, that one gift is three times bigger than the amount that America's richest family, the
descendants of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE:WMT - News) founder Sam Walton, has given during their entire lifetimes, according to our ranking.
What a nice guy, who wouldn't support him. I hope he akes a killing off of Longhorn and X-Box 2.
Anyone that bad mouths him is a fool.
