Twitter founder donates $ 1 billion to fight Corona
I want to see the effect throughout my life
Twitter founder Jack Dorsey announced on Tuesday that he will donate $ 1 billion to support efforts to fight the Covid-19 epidemic, indicating that the amount will be in the form of shares he owns in Square and will be transferred to a charity affiliated with him.
Dorsey said in a series of tweets that he will transfer his share capital from the company "Square", which specializes in digital payments, to his charitable organization, "Start Small", pointing out that the value of these shares amounts to one billion dollars and accounts for 28% of his total wealth.
Why now? Because the needs are becoming increasingly urgent, and I want to see the effect throughout my life, hoping that this will inspire others to do something similar. Life is too short, so let's do all we can today to help people now.
