Philanthropy- Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement to donate 99% of his Facebook Shares

Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement is quite humbling. Totally impressive.
In a letter to their daughter, he expresses his plan to donate 99% of his Facebook shares (about $45 billion) to his new foundation Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to help the children of the World. What an awesome way to welcome his daughter Max!- He writes…
“…As you begin the next generation of the Chan Zuckerberg family, we also begin the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation. Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities.
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…”

Congratulations to Priscilla and Mark!
