Mark Zuckerberg donates $25million to help fight Ebola + Facebook Owner, Mark Zuckerberg Buys Part of Hawaii for 100 Million Dollars!!!

Facebook founder and the 13th richest person in the world, Mark Zuckerberg, estimated to be worth over $30billion just announced on his Facebook page that he's donating $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight Ebola. Continue to read the statement he released...

Priscilla and I are donating $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight Ebola. The Ebola epidemic is at a critical turning point. It has infected 8,400 people so far, but it is spreading very quickly and projections suggest it could infect 1 million people or more over the next several months if not addressed.
We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn't spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio.
We believe our grant is the quickest way to empower the CDC and the experts in this field to prevent this outcome.
Grants like this directly help the frontline responders in their heroic work. These people are on the ground setting up care centers, training local staff, identifying Ebola cases and much more.
We are hopeful this will help save lives and get this outbreak under control.

The Facebook boss has paid more than $100 million to purchase 700 hectares of land in Kauai, the fourth largest of the Hawaiian islands, where he plans to build a private getaway befitting one of the world's richest men.

  This 700 acres on the north shore will include a pristine white sand beach, a former sugarcane plantation, and an organic farm. Under Hawaiian law the the beach will have to remain open to the public as the state has no private stretches of sand. He also

     To to fend off a developer who was going to purchase homes near his 770 hectares, and market them as being "next door to Mark Zuckerberg", he squashed an extra $30 million buying up four homes adjoining his in Palo Alto.
