    Jeff Bezos donated .20 cents usd to the Australian wildfires.

    Thanks bro.

    So he actually donated 690k usd but they did the math and its equivalent to a guy making 36k a year donating two dimes lmao.

    He didn't have to give anything. That amount is like ten average people giving their entire yearly salary.

    Sheeeesh...I'll bet people b!tch about the Christmas presents he buys for them, too.

    Your right. He did give something. Alot didnt. The problem is Jeff Bezos is an oligarch and America is slowly turning into an oligarchy with the gap between rich and poor as wide as its ever been with no sign of slowing down. Middle class is shrinking each year.

    My thoughts exactly. Its sad when people complain about how others spend their hard earned money.

    I didn't read the article, but I seriously doubt they took the time to itemize all of the charities Jeff Bezos has donated to during his lifetime. Its probably more than all of us combined.

    If he donated the equivalent of 20 cents of his salary to my Multiple Sclerosis fundraising efforts, I certainly wouldn't complain!

    He could have at least sprang for a clean buck.

    If Jeff Bezos drove a Mirage, he probably could have afforded to give more to the cause!

    There's my attempt to make this thread about the Mirage!

    I'm in the camp of we shouldn't criticize what others give. It's a personal matter.

    The original poster is a hypocrite. He still hasn't contributed towards my efforts to raise funds for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis.

    If you want to swing by I'll give you some cash for your cause. My brother in law and grandfather have MS.

    And you're using the word Hypocrite poorly in your statement as it's not really fitting.

    Also, we have donated a lot more than .20 cents and we also pay federal income taxes.
