When you consider the scope and depth of what billionaire Bill Gates has done with his fortune, it is literally astonishing. Since 2007, he has given away $28 billion to charities worldwide. That comes to about 48% of his net-worth. Wow.
The Gates Foundation, which he runs with his wife Melinda Gates, is a giant in international philanthropy. It continues ground-breaking work to end malaria, and, to expand education where it meets the 21st Century needs of a booming global population.

Their new doodle doesn’t disappoint. It celebrates the work of Art Clokey, the godfather of claymation. I remember his work as a kid. He was a trailblazer in his field, so it seems fitting that he would be recognized in this way.
See more of his work here, in the Washington Post.
