Posted on: March 16, 2018
In recent times the US has been afflicted with many natural disasters in various states. There have been hurricanes, typhoons and even blizzards. Each of these disasters has inspired celebrities with different ways to serve your country to help their fellow citizens. Celebrities have converged to help their fellow countrymen from the smallest jacket made of leather to relief efforts for entire cities. Remember that even a jacket made of leather could help save a life from the extreme winter cold. Let us look at all the different celebrities who have made contributions in the dark of the night and out in the open.
3 George Clooney:
George Clooney’s humble beginnings from Batman and Robin movie in 1997 grossed at about $ 238.20 million USD. He has sympathized with batman fans for being criticized for wearing the batman jacket in the original movie but not the famous batman leather jacket which is the Dark Knight jacket. More recently he has sold his four year old tequila company Casamigos for up to $ 1 billion to Diageo. Diageo has agreed to pay $700 million initially for the dark tequila company with the remaining payout of the $300 million over the next ten years. George Clooney, the man to play the role of batman has agreed to donate at least $ 21 million for charity once the sale finalizes. The owner of Diageo is none other than the man wearing the best Premium Leather Jackets Sean Combs, or better known as Puff Daddy.
2 Bill Gates:
For many IT entrepreneurs Bill Gates is their knight in shining armor, the ultimate role model. On August 15, 2017 Bill Gates donated 64 million of the company’s shares worth about US $ 4.6 billion to an undisclosed recipient. The donation does not leave Bill Gates in the dark as far as his wealth is concerned. It accounts for only about 5% of his total wealth which is approximately $ 89.8 billion. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has made donations of a total of US $28 billion since the 2000. This has been the largest charitable donation made by any person, knight or member of royal family anywhere in the world this year. This donation trumps Warren Buffett’s US $ 3.17 billion donation made in July 2017. Bill Gates may not wear a batman jacket but he has made a gain of US $ 6.1 billion in 2017 alone to become the richest American in 2017.
1 Warren Buffet:
Warren Buffett made a donation of US $ 3.17 billion in July 2017 which is the largest amount he ever gave to charity. From the year 2000 alone until 2017 Mr. Buffett has given away US $ 46 billion which makes him the most charitable person in America. He is the second richest man in the United States valued at US $ 74.9 billion by Forbes but he is still the person who has made the most charitable donations. He is good friends with Bill Gates. In comparison Bill Gates the younger knight out of the two philanthropists has donated a total of US $ 35 billion since 1994. This is the reason why the number one spot goes to Warren Buffett with $ 46 billion starting count of the charitable donations from the year 2000.
