Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is stepping up pledging $1 billion toward Coronavirus relief. According to Dorsey and BBC News, the figure represents more than 1/4 of the 43-year-old’s wealth.
In a Twitter thread, Dorsey says that he’s chosen to fight for long term solutions by putting his money toward UBI and Girl’s health and education. I believe they represent the best long-term solutions to the existential problems facing the world. UBI is a great idea needing experimentation. Girl’s health and education is critical to balance,” Dorsey said on Twitter.
Dorsey received praise for his billion-dollar donation from former 2020 Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang and Education Activist Malala Yousafzai.
