Amazon titan Jeff Bezoss ex-wife revealed Tuesday that she has given away nearly $1.7 billion to nonprofits battling everything from racial and gender inequities to global warming.
Like many, I watched the first half of 2020 with a mixture of heartbreak and horror, MacKenzie Bezos wrote in an open letter posted on the Web site Medium.
Life will never stop finding fresh ways to expose inequities in our systems; or waking us up to the fact that a civilization this imbalanced is not only unjust, but also unstable.
MacKenzie whose divorce from Jeff made her one of the richest women in the world, with an estimated fortune of at least $36 billion pledged last year to donate half her money to charity.
In her statement Tuesday, the philanthropist listed more than 115 charities she has given money to so far, including everyone from the Movement for Black Lives, the Harlem Childrens Zone-COVID-19 Relief and Recovery and Hispanic Scholarship Fund to the National Womens Law Center, Obama Foundation and George W. Bush Presidential Center.

So, she’s funding the DNC.
Color me shocked.
Funding Malaria treatment and abatement programs would have been more meaningful
Cute that they call political contributions “charity”.
ONLY HALF?????She can’t live on 1 billion and give 35 billion away????

I took a look at the list. I was disappointed to find that the Leaning Right Foundation to Buy a New Truck was not on the list. Oh, well. Maybe next year.
I’m not even *slightly* impressed.Now,donating almost 2 billion to feed and provide medical care to the poor of Africa and Asia would impress me.
Hey Dumbass.....DONATE ALL OF IT!!
Gates tried that approach. Funded mosquito nets and the development of the world’s first parasite vaccine (for Malaria).
His thanks was he’s now accused of being a witch (I’m not kidding) who’s trying to mind control everyone with microchips hidden in the vaccines he’s funding (but has no control over because he’s just handing out grants).
I’m not sure why anyone would give to charity anymore. Democrats want to get rid of all your tax incentives for doing so and the anti-vax/conspiracy theorists want to burn you at the stake.
I’m a charity...
I’m a charity case.
Can you spare $100 million for my cause?
Beat me by 30 seconds
Sounds like she is just getting started spending/donating her own money.
36 Billion. Wow.
I would buy an island.
Note to self:
“Create a charity organization with a leftist name on it”
Works out nicely, for these globalists, doesn’t it?
Throwing good money after bad. Better to invest in projects and products that deliver tangible benefit.
Amazon titan Jeff Bezoss ex-wife sounds like an expert on unstable and imbalance.
Those aren't charities.
