Giving of all these people is highly appreciated. Thay have really made a difference in the world. This need to be continued and increased.
However, when we look them as one of the biggest givers, let us not forget the other ones. There are some givers who have remained half hungry to feed others; There are so many poor and middle-class folks who have difficulties in making their ends meet but still had gone out of the ways to extend help to others. Let us remember these 'bigger' givers too at this time.
The # 1 should be the American tax payers ---because the government pisses our money away to countries that hate us ---- wake up and start taking care of your own people President O'blunder
To those Gimmecrats I say, give up your drugs, life of crime, baby mommas and go to work. The folks on this list are wealthy enough to carry your sorry butt, however the vast majority of us working folk are not. We would prefer to spend our paycheck paying off our mortgage, putting our kids through school, and paying for our own health insurance rather than find a way to fund your next fix or cell phone.
I don't see anybody on this list that gave a bigger percentage of their income than I did. Where is my name?
Just like it is not about profit but profit margin, it is not about charity dollars but charity as a percentage of income.

When a U.S. citizen receives a tax reduction for giving money to charity, all other U.S. citizens have to make up for the taxes that that person did not pay. And that's OK, if the donation were made to a charity INSIDE THE UNITED STATES.
It's also OK for a U.S. citizen to give to charity in a foreign country. People have a right to spend their money as they see fit. However, when that person receives a tax reduction for such giving, I don't believe that all of us should be required to make up for the unpaid taxes. This is particularly true when we have so much need INSIDE THE UNITED STATES.
When you have billions, it's easy to give a billion

Percentage wise there are many middle class people that give more than the above referenced people ..
LET'S COMPARE APPLES TO APPLES ...Not rich people to poor people ....
