This isn't really news, as pointed out this is a PLEDGE and the movement started a few years ago .. Warren Buffett started this a while back and has
been asking others with wealth to do the same.
It's for a good cause.. but keep in mind it's just a pledge, few have actually DONE it .. and most probably won't .. But again this has been going on
for a few years now and it's just becoming a popular PR move ... I find it awfully suspect for example that Zuckerberg pledged not long after "The
Social Network" came out making him look worse than he already has... it's an image thing..
I look at it as a loan on their image.. they can pledge billions to a charity, the pledge is basically "before they die" .. so zuckerberg for example
doesn't have to own up to his pledge for years to come.. he gets the immediately karma boost for making the pledge, but when he's 70 .. who's going to
remember? .. and who's to say he even has to .. there's no obligation for him to live up to it..
