Billionaire Jeff Bezos plans to give away most of his $124billion fortune

Billionaire Jeff Bezos has said he will give away most of his $124billion fortune to charities fighting climate change adding philanthropy is ‘very hard.

The Amazon founder announced he wants to support people who can unify humanity and heal deep social and political divisions.

Bezos did not give specific details about the charities he will donate to or how much he will give or when during an interview with CNN.

Sitting alongside his partner Lauren Sanchez, the businessman said they are ‘building the capacity to be able to give away this money’.

Bezos said: ‘The hard part is figuring out how to do it in a levered way. It’s not easy, building Amazon was not easy.

‘It took a lot of hard work, a bunch of very smart teammates and I’m finding that philanthropy is very similar – it’s not easy it’s very hard.

‘We are building the capacity to being able to give away this money. There are a bunch of ways that I think you could do ineffective things, too.

‘So you have to think about it carefully and you have to have brilliant people on the team.’
