MacKenzie Bezos, wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, is half of her ability to donate to charities. It would be a total of about 16.5 billion euro, reports the BBC Tuesday.
MacKenzie Bezos has a fortune of about 37 billion dollars (approximately 33,1 billion euro). The lion’s share of them (about 31,2 billion euro) she received after her divorce.
The Amazon ceo remained the richest man in the world with an estimated capacity of more than 127 billion euros. MacKenzie Bezos was a blow to the richest woman in the world.
Jeff Bezos praises on Twitter the action from his ex-wife. The Amazon founder is not yet planning.
MacKenzie is going to be amazing and thoughtful and effective at philanthropy, and I’m proud of her. Her letter is so beautiful. Go get ‘em, MacKenzie. https://t.co/S2gLLBQyRQ

It is not the first time that a billionaire promises to such an amount to give away. The action is in 2010, created by the American topbelegger Warren Buffett and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. They cried to the richest people to the half of their fortune away to good causes.
In the nine-year period, 204 individuals, groups, and families the action endorsed. She signs no contract, but if it were a public promise.
