"It fills me with gratitude and optimism to be part of a species so bent on self-improvement" Jeff Bezos said."
Amazon (AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie announced on Twitter Thursday that he will give $2 billion to help homeless families and create a new network of nonprofit preschools in low-income communities.
The pledge, announced in a tweet, fulfills the promise he made last year when he tweeted that he planned to give money to charities that help people facing the most desperate, immediate need. The Amazon founder asked for feedback from nonprofit leaders working on the front lines to help the planet’s neediest people.
The $2 billion gift establishes the Bezos Day One Fund, which will support two missions. The Day One Families Fund will steer money to existing charities that help the homeless. The Day One Academies Fund will create the preschools in low income communities.
When he first asked for suggestions last year on how to jump-start his philanthropy, Mr. Bezos got an earful. The feedback was swift and high-volume with nonprofits bombarding Bezos with requests. He responded to at least one request for a gift early this year with a $33 million donation to TheDream.US, a charity that provides college scholarships to undocumented students, but no other large donations were publicly announced.
We commend the world's richest man and his wife for using part of thier fortune to help homeless families and to establish preschools in low-income communities. If you got some billions to spare, why not try and save the world???
