Gates has saved over five million lives by bringing vaccines and improved
healthcare to children internationally". Bill Gates is a co-founder and the
former CEO of Microsoft. Bill Gates has also started the Bill & Melinda
Gates foundation with his wife, Melinda Gates. Bill Gates is a hero to many
because of all his donations towards making developing nations or under
developing nations better.
an interview ABC NEWS George Stephanopoulos asked about why Bill Gates decided
to donate his money he said: "Well, the first thing was the decision that it
probably wouldn't be good for my kids, for it to go to them" (Stephanopoulos).
He later also said: "Well my mom was very involved in the community, always
gave a lot of time in non-profit activities more than anything else."
(Stephanopoulos), that is why Bill Gates decided to donate his money. There are
also two words I would use to describe Bill Gates.
Bill Gates is a hero to many because he is a
compassionate and determined person because he has made many donations to
charity. According to the text, "As of April 2010 Bill Gates had donated over
$36,854 billion in his lifetime over half of his net worth" (Carter). This
passage illustrates that Bill Gates is compassionate because it shows how much
money he donated to make the world a better place. In addition, according to
the text "At age 57 Bill Gates wanted to do more including working to eradicate
polio" (Tweedie). This passage illustrates that Bill Gates is determined
because the passage he is working to wipe polio off the face of the earth.
a result of Bill Gates's work he has saved over five million lives for bringing
vaccines and improved health care to children in developing nations according
to Johnny Carter of viral thread.com. Bill Gates has also saved more than six
million lives since 1994 when he and his wife started the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation according to Jemima Lewis from the Telegraph.co.uk.
Gates is a hero for all his donations towards better health in developing countries
across the globe. Personally Bill Gates is my hero because he started
Microsoft, the only computer company I like. He is also my hero because I
believe in equality amongst the sexes, something Bill Gates fought for at a
speech in Saudi Arabia. Bill Gates is an important person because he has saved
over 5 million lives by helping bring vaccines developing countries. According
to Bill Snyder in 50 years Bill Gates will be remembered for his charity work
not for founding Microsoft and Steve Jobs will be forgotten.
