100 million here, 100 million there

Here, edited, are the top three posts in the email newsletter version of today's Philanthropy News Digest. I have to say, these numbers get your attention....

 (1)  Gates Foundation Awards $105 Million to University of 
Washington for Health Institute
(2) HSBC Launches $100 Million Climate Change Effort
(3) Washington and Lee University Receives $100 Million Gift

If this keeps up, $100 million may become the base number for a "big gift." Sort of the way ATMs made $20 bills ubiquitous.
