  1. I don’t now what the criteria for a celebrity is but I am always surprise that Bill & Melinda Gates do not get more coverage. These guys are changing the world by the projects they support. Gates has put his money where his mouth is. He and his wife Melinda have so far given away $28 billion via their charitable foundation, more than $8 billion of it to improve global health. I am impressed.
