Carlos Slim was recognized by Bill Clinton with the special distinction of the 2012 Clinton Global Citizen Award.

If you’re wondering how and why he was selected for this, just read his intro given before he accepted the award:

“Slim Helú has been decisive in increasing the human, cultural, and economic capital of Mexico, and has personally supported more than 165 thousand young students so that they may assist college, he has paid for numerous surgeries, and has donated equipment to rural schools.”

Mega-wealthy businessman and philanthropist!
