Bill Clinton pledges to match gifts to foundation

Former President Bill Clinton says he will put up a $2 match for every $1 donated to his foundation this week.

In a letter Tuesday sent out by the Clinton Foundation, Clinton says he will match all donations made through Saturday.

He established the foundation as the anchor of his post-presidency work.

The organization has a range of initiatives, including working with governments to improve access to treatment for people with AIDS and malaria, supporting small businesses in developing areas and looking for ways to combat climate change.

The foundation has been in operation for 10 years.
