According to CNN Amazon Ceo Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie will commit $2 billion to fund existing nonprofits to help homeless families. The money will also create a network of preschools in low-income communities.

The project is called “Bezos Day One Fund.” He announced it on Twitter this morning.

Past Donations

Earlier this year, Amazon partnered with the Seattle nonprofit Mary’s Place to build a permanent homeless shelter in its headquarters. Previously they helped the nonprofit house 200 homeless people. That’s not it either.

Bezos and his wife also donated $10 million to “With Honor,” a nonpartisan organization and super PAC wants to boost the number of veterans in politics. Their goal is $30 million and Bezos gave them one-third of it.

Past talk of not contributing his fortune will probably cease as this fund is massive and will help many.
