Bill Gates is not the greedy man that allot of people picture when hearing the name 'Gates' in fact Bill Gates is quite the giving man when it comes to computers and the internet. Last year some time Bill Gates visited Chicago's Einstein Elementary School where he announced grants benefiting Chicago's schools and museums where he donated a total of 110 000 dollars , a bunch of computers, and connected the internet to a number of schools. Secondly Bill Gates donated 38 million dollars for the building of a computer institute at Stanford University. Thirdly Gates donates to Habitat for Humanity and plans to give away 95% of all his earnings when he is old and gray. To conclude Bill Gates donates to a number of charities and causes especially those promoting computers.
