  • Aliko Dangote and I have a lot in common. We both started successful businesses in the late 1970s, and for our second act in life, we both chose to start foundations. Melinda and I are lucky to have him as a partner (and friend!) in our work. Our foundations are working together to improve malnutrition in Nigeria, which could have an impact on all of Africa.

  • I think you’ll be inspired by the story of Dr. Elvis Eze. Having suffered from malaria several times himself, Dr. Eze is now helping to lead the fight against malaria by serving as a Youth Ambassador for @malarianomoreuk. When we achieve @theglobalgoals, it will be because of people like Dr. Eze.

  • The @netflix docuseries about my life and work is out today. I think it gives viewers a sense of how I think about things– basically what’s going on in my brain. Click on the link in my bio for a deeper look into the stories.

  • Our foundation just released our 2019 Goalkeepers report. This year it’s about inequality around the world, and in particular how geography and gender can stack the deck against billions of people. I hope you’re inspired by the stories of communities that are leading the way on health care, climate change, women’s empowerment, and other crucial areas. Take a look [link in bio] and let us know what you think.

  • Life with Warren is always an adventure. Happy 89th birthday! Here’s to many more boat rides together—with life jackets, of course!

  • I spent the last couple years participating in a @netflix docuseries looking at my work and my life, and it’s finally coming out next month. 
It was fun to spend time answering questions both serious and silly. The strangest part about participating in a documentary like this is having to talk about your own life so much. I can talk all day and night about my work, but discussing my personal history is just not something that comes super naturally to me. Luckily, director Davis Guggenheim and his team were total pros.

I hope you enjoy what they’ve put together. The series is made up of three episodes, and it’s available on Netflix starting on September 20. Click the link in my bio to watch the trailer.

  • In just six years of teaching, Robert Hand has had such a tremendous impact on his school that he was named the 2019 Teacher of the Year for my home state of Washington. He was nice enough to visit my office earlier this year and show me how to make one of his students’ favorite dishes: barbecue chicken.

  • I was honored to talk about my late friend Paul Allen at the Forbes Philanthropy Summit. He was one of the most intellectually curious people I’ve ever known. As a kid, he seemed to be interested in just about everything. And as an adult, that curiosity continued to influence every part of his life -- including his philanthropy, which will continue to benefit society for decades to come. I wish he had gotten to see all of the good his curiosity and generosity will do for the world.

  • The older I get, the more I treasure any time I get to spend with my dad. He is all the things I strive to be: a fantastic husband, a loving father, an effective philanthropist, and an engaged citizen of the world. Happy #fathersday, Dad.
