  1. Hi Bill Gates:

    I am a visionary person who sees things now and into the future.
    I am working on a project called ‘Aurora Castle Theme Park’, however, it is much more than that. The building engulfs the 3 E’s – energy, environment, and education. This building can be franchised, so I was told, in every capital city of the world. It would be nice if we could entertain you & Melinda for an hour-long seminar to discuss our visionary project as to it’s creation and development.
    We have interviewed many people and they all asked when, where, and how can we get to you to see how this project is evolving. Yes, this is a company and it has intellectual properties.
    I would like to send my personal business card which would show the concept of the building.
    Is it possible for you to send a personal business card back to us?
    Our email is: aurora castle theme park @
    Thanking you and looking forward to your email at your earliest convenience.

      • Hello Mr Gates, I am writing this note for my daughter Hailey. I want to give her a great education because, I believe that’s the best asset a parent can give a child. She was assessed by a psychologist who said she has a learning disability. The special ed in the public school in the Bronx is of no use. It would make me very happy if you would help my daughter get the education she deserve.

      • I’d like to know if there are any beneficiaries in the Philippines from your foundation, Sir. And if so, I’d like to ask how to apply for that. Financial support is really needed here in my country especially when it comes to college tuition.

  22. Hi Mr Gates, my name is Rachel. I am so happy to read about you and your kindness to others couple with your achievements in life . Sir, i need your help financially . I need to start a business of buying and selling but am financially not able . Please sir, kindly help me . Will be happy to hear from you soon .

  23. Wow!
    Though not being surprised, i am quite flipped that so many such ignorant people would actually post out their desires for money, asking the richest of the rich in such hypocritical indirect manners. I’m not saying that i would never desire that some rich tycoon would hand out some of his $$$ to me, especially knowing how hard my life has been and how financially disadvantaged my situation is atm. But seriously, do u really think that such a thing is going to happen? Oh! even less think that those people actually have the time to come here and read your crying out pleases? Dream on and In the mean time all opportunities for making any possible amount of $$$ passes you by. What a waste of your precious time.

  24. Adding to my previous post, i must say that i will be totally humbled if any such thing ever happens. If so, blessed be though and hopefully for you if being fully sincere that you may attain you goals knowing how hard at times things can be. We all have dreams though we first need to know that often too many negative patterns keep us from attaining our goals. That such pattern makes us bow before others begging their riches instead being the sole master of your own dreams and thus being the ones working hard at attaining them first then if some one on the way gives you some financial assistance you will feel so much happier to receive rather than asking cash from others without doing anything.

  25. may our almighty God bless you for your hard work that you do you are indeed a great man i will be like you one day ,i respect you.i need your help and support to be like you sir…..thank you

  26. Comment*i am always inspire by the God spirit greatness from this men and i pray for them and the entire world that will unite us and continue to bless us all

  27. Mr. Bill Gates is actually helping Africa. India and other countries in terms of health, education, family planning (responsible parenthood) through information dissemination and research for vaccines in order to curb death rates for children especially for developing countries. What more can we asked from a person so merciful? And together with Mr. Warren Buffet, helped the world gave up billions in dollars for charity works and other humanitarian causes.

    Kudos to all of you, who helped those who are less fortunate and may your tribe increased! May God our creator continue to shower you with more blessings and good health.

  34. Hi Bill Gates,

    Hope this finds you in your best of time and high spirits.

    I highly appreciate that you have donated lot of money for various good causes all over the world including India. Today I am requesting some small investment in the following research project related to India’s treasure of ancient knowledge, for the benefit of all mankind.

    India has the world’s very old civilization. It also holds very valuable ancient literatures in spiritual understanding, science, art, culture, ethics, human behaviour, life values, natural medicines, yoga, meditation, finances, politic, mathematics, astronomy etc. Most of this knowledge is now hidden somewhere, most probably in Sanskrit language. This knowledge could prove to be most useful for the whole humans beings to learn being human. Please help to bring this knowledge back to this earth in an organized form, to be used by the coming generations. I am sure this will be great contribution towards bringing peace on this planet.

    One way to achieve this is by setting few dedicated research scholarships in universities in USA, UK & India with well defined outcomes. I sincerely believe that this effort is possible only from you as you have always supported research for humanitarian causes.

    I am ready to discuss further and offer my voluntary services for this noble cause. I am an engineer by profession and MBA in administration and finance.

    Thanking you for your attention and trusting to hear soon from you.

  35. Comment*I don’t tell you anything for me……. because my allah help me everytime…….he/she is the real Rich of all over the Galaxy……..but I pray for you,,,
    please help for poorness people…..I don’t need any mony because I love nature….. god bless you……

  36. I will recommend you for how precise you were in writing the article. My suggestion is, I have heard about Rothchild and Rockerfela families, and in those articles, these two families have a great economical influence on the world and are the most wealthiest families to some extent, control the world. I don’t know why they do that, but why is it that anytime the rankings of world richest men are analyzed each year, Bill Gate comes first? Does he bears a bloodline of any of these families?

    Again, there is something weird about these richest people. Almost all of them are philanthropist, any detail explanation on that?

  37. Good day Sir, I just to use this medium to thanks you because you are a blessing to the world, God will continue to keep you in good health as well as long life.

  38. Sir,
    It is with immense joy and gratitude that i, Vimede Seleyi would like to thank you and your family for all the countless humanitarian services all around the world.I also would like to take this precious time of yours, to congratulate you on attaining the top number one spot at wealth.May the almighty God bless you and your family now and on the days to come.
    Once again, a big thank you.

  39. Those Guys worked hard and had sleepless nights .. so instead of asking for money and how they get it , ask for advice and ideals, trust me knowledge is everlasting and money isn’t. ….
    And to Bill Gates remember my name Nosiku Minyoi, cause I will create an OS that’s better than yours probably before I am 22 …you are still my role model though.

  41. inspiring people, winning heart
    : Mr. Bill Gates said if you born poor it’s not your mistake if you die poor it’s totally your mistake

  42. I dont know anyone that wouldn’t want to have $. Even rich people dont stop wanting it. Its the security and the worry free life that money gives that makes everyone want it. Who wouldnt want that? I dont know any one that would want to struggle to get somewhere in life just that some have it worst than others. Do you think that the poor want to be poor or the people that cant aford the basic things to survive be lacking them or single mothers that whant to raise their kids alone working 2 jobs. Obviously not. So for us people that dont have the privilege to have a non worry life whe should be thankfull if we dont have it worser than what already is and we keep trying to get better in life. And to those rich people that made all ther money doing good god bless you. Its the difference that you make with your money in others life that counts.
