Bill Gates might be best known as the co-founder of Microsoft and the world's richest man. Although he has a lot of money, he did many good deeds and donated a lot of his property to the poor. His target is to give 10,000,000,000 US dollars to the poor. In 6 years he has already donated 3,000,000,000 US dollars. It's almost 60% of his property. Now let's find out what he has done to make the world better.
You might think that Bill Gates will waste much of his money to enjoy his life, however, in every year, Bill Gates and his wife spend some time to visit the poorest countries in the world. Once, they went to visit mud houses in India.
Bill Gates and his wife had a nice time chatting with the poor people there, but the people there would never know that the man standing in front of them is the richest man in the world.
Bill Gates also spent a lot of money to help the poor people in Africa to vaccinate.
Bill Gates said that he won't leave any heritage to his child because he will give all his heritage to the charity. Before doing this project, we will never forget those good deeds. We used to think that Bill Gates was crazy, but after we finished this project we know that it's all because of Bill Gates's help and his kindness.
The person who inspires him is his mom. She told him "The one who is given more, will be expected more," so he started to make the world better. This is why he does so many deeds. We are all very happy to have the chance to know him better. His story and his kindness touched our heart. We learned a lot from him, and we wish everyone can know him better. It will be a nice thing for us to change the world together.
