Zuckerberg and wife will donate majority of wealth to charity following birth of daughter


Following the birth of their daughter, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have announced they will donate the majority of their wealth to charity.

Their baby girl, Max, was born last week and 31-year-old Zuckerberg posted about her arrival on Facebook on Tuesday. APTN reports that the couple plans to give around €42 million to causes including education improvements, clean energy, reducing poverty, promoting equal rights, and fighting disease.
Launching the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, they wrote an open letter to their daughter (image below from Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook), saying they want her to live in “a world where our generation can advance human potential and promote equality”.
