Jeff Bezos awards $100 million to charities of Dolly Parton's choice
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced a plan to give away most of his $124 billion fortune during his life, leading to jokes about how Elon Musk might end up doing the same ... by mistake.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, Bezos, 58, was asked if he plans to donate most of his wealth, to which he said, "Yeah, I do."
Some of the causes Bezos cares about are fighting climate change and supporting people who are helping others. The former Amazon CEO recently pledged $100 million to musician and philanthropist Dolly Parton for charities of her choosing.
The announcement comes after Bezos has been under scrutiny for not pledging his mass fortune away like his ex-wife Mackenzie Scott.
