  • Facebook founder to donate $45+ billion for benefit of future generations

    ... and writes a heartfelt letter to his newborn daughter.

    We will give 99% of our Facebook shares -- currently about $45 billion -- during our lives to advance this mission. We know this is a small contribution compared to all the resources and talents of those already working on these issues. But we want to do what we can, working alongside many others.
    Well worth reading the letter I feel.

    He seems to think all diseases could be cured or prevented during his daughter's lifetime - something that had never occurred to me.

    Interesting move. Instead of letting the Govt take most of his money through taxation, he will re-distribute almost all of it himself, on his own terms.

    Clever fellow.

      Wonder how he'll make it work in the future, since the first $100 million kinda got flushed down the toilet.
