MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, says she gave $4.2 billion to charity
Now that is what I call stepping up to the plate. Her ex-old-man should be as generous as she is.
MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos, said in a blog post that she has given away $4.2 billion of her fortune in the past four months. Scott said she accelerated her charitable donations because of the “wrecking ball” effect of the coronavirus, which she noted has also “substantially increased the wealth of billionaires.”
Can we assume Scott is going to have to cut back on her lifestyle since she dropped such a big chunk of change?? Not likely.
The fact is, she made over 24 billion dollar$ since the beginning of the year. That is on top of what he already had, making her net worth about 60 bbbbillion dollar$.
So, is what she donated for tax purposes making her not as generous as it seems?? But anyway we cut the bologna, all in all they were exceptional generous.
To give us a little perspective on how much 4.2 billion is: The average income for someone in the USA is 68,000.00 – divided that into 4.2 billion, it would take that person 61,765 years to make that kind of $oldi. By that time, they would be too old and to worn out to $pend any of it.
Be that as it my, hats off to the old girl. Like Dean Martin used to say; keep those cards and letters coming i!!
