BUILT FOR MAN LIKES: BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION

Posted: Aug 07 2012

GATES FOUNDATION IS KING OF PHILANTHROPY


 

Since our inception, Built for Man has made a strong effort to support small communities in developing countries. Our Loom Project in Peru was established to create opportunities for people that process alpaca wool to create the textiles that we use in many of our items. Built for Man is working with other communities to foster sustainable economic growth as well. We believe that we are only successful if we are assisting those developing communities as well as ourselves. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation holds the same philosophy, and Built for Man likes them for it!

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation began in 1994 with the belief that every life has equal value. They support global development, global health, a variety of charities and provide scholarships and grants to students. The foundation had an endowment of around $33 billion in 2011 and is definitely making a huge difference in global development. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have called on the wealthy to donate a portion of their assets to charity and development efforts. With forward thinking ideas like that, we love this organization.
