Now this is philanthropy

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are serious about ending or at least preventing and/or managing disease. All disease. By the end of this century.

They are donating $3 billion over the next ten years to work toward that goal.

That's Billion with a B.

I was going to say something snarky and/or point out how inadequate this makes me feel about my own charitable giving, but you know what? I'm not gonna do that. I'm just gonna tip my cap to this incredible gesture and be thankful.

Say what you want about the business practices of people like Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. No one can ever say to them, "put your money where your mouth is".
