Amazon's Jeff Bezos Commits $2 Billion to Help Homeless, Pre-Schools

According to Reuters, Jeff Bezos, Amazon's founder and the world’s richest person, said that he will commit $2 billion to helping homeless families and starting pre-schools for low-income communities.

Bezos solicited ideas on Twitter last year for ways to donate some of his wealth.

The new philanthropic effort is called the Bezos Day One Fund, which will support existing non-profits that offer shelter and food to young homeless families.
