We owe a lot of the technology we use today to Bill Gates. But these days, he and wife Melinda spend their time (and money) doing philanthropy. Through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the couple has pledged $10 billion to fund what they’re calling “the decade of vaccines”. Their goal is to increase vaccination rates around the world by 2020, which could save as many as 8 million children.
