From the BBC:
Amazon chief Jeff Bezos is putting $2bn (£1.5bn) into a charitable fund he has established to help the homeless and set up a new network of schools.
The world’s richest man announced the move in a tweet, saying the charity would be called the Day One Fund.
Mr Bezos – reportedly worth more than $164bn – has faced criticism for not doing more philanthropic work.
. . . .
He said on Thursday that the “Bezos Day One Fund” will contribute to “existing nonprofits that help homeless families” and also fund “a network of new, nonprofit, tier-one preschools in low-income communities”.
