Trending: Week in Review: Most popular stories on GeekWire for the week of July 16, 2017

The Frugal Dad has created an awesome infographic, detailing the impact that Bill Gates’ philanthropic efforts have had on the world. Taking a phrase from comedian and talk show host Jon Stewart, the Frugal Dad notes that the Microsoft co-founder is better than Batman.

The infographic estimates that Gates — through donations to global health causes — has saved an estimated 5.8 million lives.

“Obviously most of us don’t have the kind of capital that Bill Gates has to work with, but I feel that everyone could learn from his philosophy towards philanthropy,” writes the Frugal Dad in introducing the infographic. “I admire that his approach is both compassionate and practical. He sees charitable endeavors as something well worth investing in, because ultimately everyone benefits from an overall better quality of life around the world.”
