And Bill Clinton released on Thursday a list of his donors from his foundation. The former president did this to help the transition for his wife, Hillary Clinton, to become Secretary of State. The 2-largest donations came from UNITAID, an international organization that purchases prescription drugs to aid sick children and from the Children's Investment Fund Foundation - both giving more than 25-million-dollars each. Some other high-rollers on the list include the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and real estate friend, Stephen Bing - each donating between 10-million and 25-million dollars.
