DENVER, Jan. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, personal finance blog FrugalDad (www.frugaldad.com) releases its latest infographic: "Bill Gates is Better than Batman." It posits a bold claim: that the Microsoft founder, Forbes 400 member and well-known philanthropist puts traditional superheroes to shame. The graphic lays out the astounding scope of the charitable work executed by one of the world's most famous and most wealthy entrepreneurs, and how his efforts warrant a redefinition of the term "Action Hero."
Bill Gates' charitable impacts are mind boggling: his efforts to bring vaccinations and improved healthcare to children internationally have already saved the lives of over 5 million children under the age of five. Additionally, Gates' materially increased global access to medicine by working with pharmaceutical companies to drop vaccination costs by as much as 99%. Along with his wife Melinda, the couple has donated over $28 billion to charitable causes worldwide.
The graphic also highlights the Gates' tandem project with billionaire philanthropist Warren Buffet: The Giving Pledge. And with the Pledge's enactment, more massively successful entrepreneurs can also pledge to emulate Bill Gates' super-hero humanity.

Hoping the graphic will raise awareness about the tremendous potential of mutual benefit a willingness to give back and invest in philanthropy can yield, FrugalDad points to the words of Bill Gates himself: "If you show people the problems and you show people the solutions, they will be moved to act."
