Mackenzie Bezos, during discussion of pledge shared a quote from The Writing Life by Annie Dillard.
“Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book… The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now.
Something more will arise for later, something better… Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.”
It ain’t easy to be MacKenzie
This is not the first time, Bezos has done something different than the rest.
Bezos has previously funded research for cancer and Alzheimer. She is an active social worker and has promoted marriage equality worldwide.
Moreover, she announced to spend $2 billion for supporting homeless families in 2018, along with her then-husband Jeff. She also proposed the idea of TheDream.US, that gave millions of dreams, a platform to achieve them. TheDream.US offers college fellowships and scholarships for immigrants that were brought to the U.S. as minors and undocumented as well.
The Giving Pledge is just another to bring equality in our systems. To share resources from ample-handed to underprivileged, who fails to have the basic meals in a day. Originally started in 2010 by Warren Buffet, Bill and Melinda
Gates, the rich sections promise to give more than half of their assests to charity, either in life or after death.
Until now, around 200 philanthropists have signed the Giving Pledge and influenced the young, rich millenniums across the world.
Currently, she heads the anti-bullying group, Bystander Revolution which she founded in 2013. Indeed, Mac is a true hero.
