    Google is committed to giving away some of its money
    Web search firm Google - whose motto is "don't be evil" - is setting up a subsidiary dedicated to doing good.
    Its new philanthropic division, named Google.org, will fund social investment projects in the developing world.

    Yeah I beleive Bill Gates gave around 30% of his fortune to charity last year (or this year I can't remember), but he is still the richest man on earth

    One Billion is peanuts. That's like me saying I'll give $5 to charity, in order to feeding the earthquake victims.
     
  5. I had a thread about google.org in introductions. I'd been pointed to the url but there was still some speculation when I posted the thread.

    glad to see that it is confirmed!
