This is very impressive news. According to the Wall Street Journal report, chairman and chief executive of Facebook Mr. Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Chan Zuckerberg will give away 99 per cent of Facebook share, which is now valued around USD 45 billion . This is such enormous amount of money he and hi wife will spend for the coming year. This couple will establish a foundation called "Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, LLC. Zuckerberg and his wife clearly specify that their initiative will be for upgrading the world for next generation. Put it specifically, this initiative will be used to help the poor to get proper education, curing disease, build communicative networks and promote a strong community internationally.

This is a good news for everybody and especially Facebook users as their time and money spend on Facebook throughout the year means a lot of thing. Facebook users did not just play for nothing than chit-chatting or gossiping about one another as crticizing by some people. Facebook users worldwide play Facebook reasons and this is one of the reasons. As mentioning in our previous artcile, the fruit of service is peace and Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are doing this to promote social welfare and world peace after all. This is to prove that money is not everything. Although it can help us buy something we may need but it values less comparing to the wellbeing of people in the community. Thank you so much Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan for your giantic donation and act of philanthropy. The world poor needs such people like this.

It is noteworthy to remind that Zuckerberg will direct his vast majority of shares in Facebook Inc.  toward his philanthropic work. Mark plans to sell or gift no more than $1 billion of Facebook stock each year for the next three years. This is a great commitment by such young enterpreneur Mark Zuckerberg. He conitinues to express that “Today your mother and I are committing to spend our lives doing our small part to help solve these challenges. As you begin the next generation of the Chan Zuckerberg family, we also begin the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation.”
