Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook and his wife Priscilla, who were blessed with a baby girl recently, announced that they will donate 99 per cent of their fortune to charity to celebrate their child’s birth.
The couple has also announced that they will give away 99 per cent of their Facebook stocks which are worth 45 billion US dollars, reports News.com.au.
In the post on Facebook, the billionaire couple said the donation would be made to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative during their lifetime.
The post read, “We know this is a small contribution compared to all the resources and talents of those already working on these issues. But we want to do what we can, working alongside many others.”
Zuckerberg last month said he would be taking two months off after his daughter’s birth.
