Honorary Guide since July 26, 2004. Founder of Microsoft, one of the world’s wealthiest men and a worldwide philanthropist, Gates arranged in 2004 to give yet another $3 billion to charitable trusts promoting greater equality in global health and learning. In declaring him an Honorary Guide, Rael said Gates is much more of a saint than Mother Theresa was, since he doesn’t spend 90 percent of his donated funds trying to convert those he helps to a religious faith other than their own as she did. Stating that education and basic health measures should be the right of all, Rael pointed out that Gates was setting an example of generosity and compassion – with no strings of religious conversion attached.
