Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan just had a baby girl named Max.
With that in mind, Zuckerberg announced that he wants to make the future a better place for Max and her potential children. He will try to do this by giving almost all of his Facebook-earned fortune to charity.
He and his wife will be giving 99% of their Facebook shares to their Chan Zuckerberg Charity. If you want to do the math, the worth of these shares currently is about $45 billion.
Zuckerberg said that he hopes that the fortune he earned will be able to secure a better future for the next generation and make sure that the world they will be living in will be better than the world of today.
The money will go towards promoting equality through personalized learning, curing disease and building strong communities.
