She’s worth 59 billion dollars, but she is making headlines for donating 2.7 billion dollars to charity.
She is MacKenzie Scott, who has now remarried.
But years ago, she was married to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
And when they got divorced, she got a boatload of money, billions of dollars, as part of the divorce settlement.
She donated several billion dollars in 2020, and now another 2.7 billion dollars to 300 worldwide charities.
$18 million is going to College of the Desert in Palm Desert.
Still, she has plenty for groceries for herself and her new husband, with 59 billion dollars in the bank…at a time when many Americans are struggling after having their businesses shut down, or losing their jobs due to government lockdowns during the Covid-19 pandemic.
