Read the Quote That Inspired MacKenzie Bezos to Give Away Half Her Fortune

“In addition to whatever assets life has nurtured in me, I have a disproportionate amount of money to share,” wrote Bezos

MacKenzie Bezos, who became one of the wealthiest persons in the world after divorcing Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has pledged to give at least half her fortune to charity. (Her personal fortune is currently estimated at over $36 billion.) 
Bezos recently signed the Giving Pledge, a program initiated by Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates back in 2010. According to its website, the Pledge “is a commitment by the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to giving back.”
