Extra! Padre Zuckerberg Gives Birth To Biggest Charity In The World

[rebelmouse-image 27089694 alt="""" original_size="750x1032" expand=1]

Clarin, Dec. 2, 2015

"Father, millionaire* and caring," Argentine daily Clarin joins some North American dailies in giving ample space on the front page Wednesday to news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced, in the form of an open letter to their newborn daughter Max, that they will donate 99% of their Facebook shares to charity.

The estimated $45 billion donation, pledged over the course of Zuckerberg and his wife's life, will go to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, whose mission is to "join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation," the open letter reads.

*Note: For those wondering why Zuckerberg is referred to by Clarin as a millionaire, it is because formal Spanish does not have a word for billionaire. Anyway ... lots of pesos!
