BEZOS SAYS HE’LL GIVE AWAY MOST OF HIS $124B FORTUNE
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos said he will give away the majority of his wealth during his lifetime, becoming the latest billionaire to pledge to donate much of his vast fortune. Bezos, whose “real-time” worth Forbes magazine estimates at roughly $124.1 billion, didn’t specify how - or to whom he will give away the money. Bezos had been criticized for not signing the Giving Pledge that encourages billionaires to donate the majority of their wealth through philanthropy.
