Adding, "He co-founded the Giving Pledge, calling on the world's wealthiest to also give at least half of their net worth. He recognized that the moment to help was now, so he took action and encouraged others in his position to do the same. Today, we celebrate and acknowledge Warren's leadership, kindness, and undeniable generosity. Thank you... and congratulations. #GCPrize,"
