At the seventh annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City last week, former U.S. President Bill Clinton - now dubbed the "Do-Gooder-in-Chief" by attendees - announced a total of 194 commitments in 2011, valued at $6.2 billion, from heads of state, business leaders, philanthropists and academics to implement programs that will fight poverty, create a cleaner environment, and increase access to health care and education in more than 180 nations.
