Billionaires pledge to donate half their wealth

Bill Gates is trying to save the World: One Billionaire at a Time.

FORTY of America’s billionaires and their families have pledged to give more than half of their fortune to charity in a drive organised by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

Mr Gates and Mr Buffett are reportedly aiming to secure pledges from each of the approximately 400 US billionaires.

If the entire group were to surrender half of its wealth that would amount to some $US600 billion ($657 billion), Forbes magazine estimates.

Amongst the group are famous names you may be familiar with: CNN founder Ted Turner, Hollywood director George Lucas, Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

God Bless you Bill. Keep up the good work.
