38 US billionaires who have promised to give at least half. Among them are the top 10 billionaires in the world who promise to give at least half their wealth. The 38 billionaires in the US include Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

With almost no media outlets are describing as a strong rebuttal of the socialist idea that the rich won’t give their wealth. However, these 38 US billionaires have pledged to give away at least half of their money to charity. Bill Gates, the head of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Warren Buffett have started a campaign.

The campaign is to convince all of America’s super wealthy to donate their fortunes to charity, not necessarily their own, but to any charity. The 38 US billionaires who have promised to give at least half their wealth combine a net worth of $230 billion. They have collectively promised to give over $100 billion dollars to charity.

The entire United States only donates $28 billion per year, so that sum is roughly 4 year’s worth of donations. And the wealthy’s donation will go to causes that these wise and intelligent believe will best serve to help other humans. They have innovated and created ideas that changed the world and plan to give back to help the world again.
