Morejustice - Pleaase explain. I cannot find anything negative in this article but you seem to insinuate otherwise. Maybe jealousy is a motive?

If they are seeking areas where others are not working, how did reducing carbon emissions make the list? There are so many critical needs today such as helping to get clean fresh water to another 1-2 billion people!

This money should be confiscated by the government. The government can use it to fund shovel ready projects, and put people to work, instead of waiting in line for soup.

Wow, most people can't save 8 cents and this lady has $ 8 Billion. With a foundation, the heirs save a ton in taxes and make a good living to boot as trustees.

The foundation should look into developing sustainable and affordable housing for the world citizens with low wages. Very basic communities. But proud communities. Then create jobs for people with out jobs.

How about 1 Billion for a new stadium, haha. What's more mind boggling is how much Cargill makes annually, 2-4 Billion each year, usually more than Target Corp profits, and its privately held. Kudos to Margaret Cargill, I hope the rest of the Cargill family is doing the same.
