The 60 largest American charitable contributions of the last year. – By Rachael Larimore – Slate Magazine

Wow… the amount they give is more than I make in a year in my business and investments. Ok, just kidding.

This blog post (is the Slate considered a blog???) they go over who are the biggest givers in the US and where its going to. I am amazed as to how much is given. I wonder if it helps any. Bill Gates Foundation was big enough and now its huge after a donation from Warren Buffet (I got to get this guys books on investing). he post has plenty of detail, plenty of links to look at for more info, and if well written. Cant get better than that.

The comments on this post is pretty vase and thought provocing. What’s great about Slate is that the editor can pick which comments are the best. What’s wierd is that going to the comments page and reading comments is a multi-step proccess. I especially do not get the dates per comment… anyway the comments are worthy of reading.
