In a selfless gesture that is symbolic to Warren Buffet's classic personality, he has donated the bulk of his fortune to another Billionaire's charity. With $42 Billion, it's easy to start your own charity (and make it the largest in the world). However, Warren took the selfless route of donating his fortune to a place where his funds would be put to best use. Very cool.
MoneyControl reports, "Two of the world's richest men are shifting their focus to charity from business. The 75-year old CEO of Berkshire Hathway, Warren Buffett will donate nearly USD 31 billion, that's 80% of his fortune to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation."
