17 BILLIONAIRES AGREE TO GIVE AWAY THEIR LOOT
Tech titans are among the 17 new signatories to the Giving Pledge, an initiative started in 2010 by Bill Gates and Warren Buffettaimed at getting the world's billionaires to give away the bulk of their spoils. Salesforce founder Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne as well as Airbnb co-founder Brian Chesky signed the pledge. That brings the total group, which ranges in age from 30 to 100, to 154 members in 16 countries. Gates announced the new additions Wednesday at the Code conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
