Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s co-founder, promised to give away his wealth in an announcement of the birth of his daughter, Max.
Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, wish to make the world a better place for their new-born daughter, Max. In a letter addressed to the latter published on Facebook yesterday, November 1, they mentioned their plan to dedicate 99 % of the shares of their company (estimated to be at $45 billion) throughout their lives to work for a happy and healthy world.
The shares will be directed to public work with the aim of furthering “human potential” and “promoting equality”. They intend to first focus on personalised learning, disease, bringing people together, and creating strong communities.
