Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg & his wife recently stated that they'll donate 99% of their Facebook shares that amounts roughly to $45 Billion (yeah that's right) for the good cause.
So what made them do so?
To answer your question, the couple has been blessed with a new born baby daughter Max. Celebrating the birth of their baby they made the very announcement. Zuckerberg's wife, Priscilla Chan, gave birth to a 7-pound, 8-ounce daughter last week. They didn't put out the news until Tuesday, when Zuckerberg posted it on Facebook (no surprises here).
In the same post, Zuckerberg said he and Chan will, over time, commit 99 percent of their shares from the Facebook.
Certainly, a very bold move by Mr. Zuckerberg & a very good one indeed. We congratulate the Couple on their baby, & wish the baby the best of health.
