Gates, Buffett campaign to donate to charity

Posted:

SEATTLE (WKOW) -- Bill Gates and billionaire investor Warren Buffett are starting a nationwide campaign to urge American billionaires to give to charity.

The campaign would ask that billionaires donate at least half their wealth to charity. Several people in the high brackets are enthused about the idea, and four wealthy couples have already pledged to participate.

Former Gates Foundation CEO Patty Stonesifer said Gates and Buffett have been working on this campaign for a year, and are asking people to pledge to donate at any point, including at the time of their death.
