Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world and has been criticized for not contributing more to philanthropy. This summer that may all change according to a Tweet release by Bezos. He claims that he will announce the two projects that he will fund, hopefully before the end of the summer.
This all began with a tweet made by Jeff Bezos a year ago. In the tweet he asked people for ideas for his philanthropic ventures. Contrary to his long-term business model approach, Bezos is looking for ways to make impactful differences in the short-term for people in crisis.
