Not all billionaires are the same! Clearly!
By - Wishy_washy_Though
Vitalik net worth $1 billion.
Donates $1 billion just to India.
True - but it wasn’t necessary his money to begin with, that 1 billion was gifted to him - as he gifted it back.
Gifted, in order to bring legitimacy to a bunk coin
True, but a bunk coin helped a lot of people in need!
Yeah that was awesome, but I would be willing to bet he's worth a lot more than 1 billion.
Ya prolly I just based that on a quick google search lol
Vatalik is the real iron man
Yeah, the younger gens get it waaay more I think.
They get it a little too much sometimes (or so they think).
Yah I feel you. They seem to be more charitable I should say. Wiser with money. I think they understand money a bit more.
I’d say billionaires understand money well
I think people just like to hate on rich people (given, they haven’t set a great precedent)
is this an elon sub?
unfortunately it looks like that's what this place is now
thought we were here discuss doge not suck off billionaires idk
If you want to suck them off, that's your business.
The bottom line is the money donated will help the children at St Jude. That is all the matters here. To see a child sick or dying is gut wrenching and heart breaking. I don’t care the amount : $5, $1 million or $50 million. The money will get used for research and to help those in need.
Yeah, it’s great, absolutely.
I think this community is a bit too fond of Elon at times, and they forget that while it’s great that Elon makes these donations, he’s done quite a bit of other shady/kinda unethical things which shouldn’t be respected.
Elon musk isn’t our friend, but when he makes a donation like that it isn’t wrong to be happy show respect for that decision.
When doge hits $1 I will take 30% of my profits and donate it to St. Jude. I’ve donated to them before and seeing children dying of something like cancer is heart wrenching. I’m also donating some of my profits from my babysitting & doge walking business to The Trevor Project, which helps with suicidal and depressed teens. When doge hits a $1 I will donate, because Do Only Good Everyday
The real winner is Mackenzie Scott who donates a far larger proportion of her wealth.
Anyone that donates to kids over political campaigns and other BS, is doing a good job in my opinion.
Dolly Parton is the person we should all emulate.
True, she's done so much.
Well easier for her because she didn’t even work hard for it she just divorced the richest man ever the poor loser is you who’s never donated anything and can’t even donate to their level.
If you read up on Scott, you would know she was heavily involved with the original Amazon incarnation and Bezos founded the company with her, and she not only helped come up with the name and their early business models, but also helped sign some of their early big contracts. It was only after Amazon started becoming the behemoth it is now that she stopped working.
Don't be fooled... tax right off....
I think it's "tax write off" fren.
“You don’t even know what a right off is, do you?”
"They do! And they're the ones writing it off!"
Y’all know how tax write offs work … right?
To be fair, that's chump change to both of them.
...And do you think I'd turn down $50 million if someone donated it to me just because it's "chump change" for the donor? ($50 million in Dogecoin preferred, of course.)
I mean, no, but it's literally .025% of his net worth.
If you have $1,000,000 to your name and donated that much, it would be $250. That's not anything to brag and be called a hero for.
That’s not how it works. Lol the charity doesn’t get $250 even if it’s “like donating $250”. They actually really get $50 million. He did more to help than you ever will in your entire life. He did more to help than every person you’ve ever known in your life combined will ever do.
Yeah. I don't recall using the word "hero" anywhere in my post. But neither am I going to complain when somebody donates that much money to a children's hospital that, y'know, saves kids' lives.
You didn't, true, that was OP. And I didn't complain in my comment either, I literally praised it a couple times now. I just said it was chump change. Which it is. It's literally *nothing* to him. If I had his money I'd be throwing hundreds of millions at charities all the damn time, because it would never even scratch the money I have. Even ten percent of his wealth is 19.6 ***BILLION.*** You could also look at this as, "sick kids aren't worth enough to him to donate even half a percent of his wealth."
Yeah, I suppose so. The flip side of that, of course, is that he doesn't seem to be hyperfocused on just one cause. $50 million for a children's hospital, a few million for community improvement projects and education in basically his backyard, adopts a shibe, however many billion to get Tesla off the ground to move cars away from running on gasoline and he's slapping solar panels on Tesla's charging stations. Plus those billions on paper aren't what he'd get out of it if he suddenly sold all his shares in Tesla and SpaceX. He'd probably tank TSLA if he did that and not even have that much money in the bank.
True, he isn't literally hoarding it like a dragon lmao and it's good that he's giving back. I just think he could be doing much more and making much better use of his time. He could sell Tesla and spend the rest of his life doing nothing but working to help the less fortunate and probably still have more money than he'd ever know what to do with by the end. When you have that much already I don't really understand why you would still trying to build more for yourself.
Sure. Though by the time he retires, it'll probably on Mars so he doesn't have to deal with us rubes who talk about what he could be doing instead, lol. (Would be entertaining to see what his will looks like too, lmao.)
Very true 😂
If you think a billionaire doesn’t think 50,000,000 mil is a lot you would be wrong
I really think people here aren't grasping how much money he really has. He's not *just* a billionaire.
If he sold all his assets right now so that we could use his actual networth to accurately calculate this, he could literally give away ***100 million dollars*** every ***two weeks*** for ***75 and a half years.***
The math: (100,000,000 \* 26) \* x = 196,300,000,000 , x = 151/2
Granted he *hasn't* sold all his assets and given his plans I doubt he will, but you really need to put his vast wealth in a better perspective.
If he liquidated all of his companies stocks sure, but that would have a myriad of other effects
This is true, it's not a realistic scenario to expect that im js. Like if I were him honestly, I'd try and get the best deal for Tesla and then just live a life of relaxation and generosity. He could even still do SpaceX
If you received 50M in doge at the time of your comment it would now be worth 50,425,000million
I mean, how is that being fair? He donates $50 million and all you can think of is how much he has left? 😂
Because his wealth is hardly affected. It's the middle class equivalent of donating $1 a few times when you go grocery shopping. It's great that he did this obviously, I didn't mean it's pointless. But he could have donated even like $20 billion and still have more money than he could spend in a thousand lifetimes.
Lol no, 50 million is 5% of his wealth, so it would be like giving $5,000 of your wealth if you had 100k.
Are you talking bout net worth? Because 5% of Elon’s net worth is like 9.8 billion dollars.
50 million is like 0.025%. Or someone making a 100k donating 25 bucks
Net worth presently of $196billion and some change
Yeah, I was off by 99 billion 😂
50 million is 5% of one billion. Elon musk is worth about 190 billion. So far far less than 5% of his wealth.
Sorry bro, your math is WAY wrong. Close to $10billion is 5% of his wealth. It’s more like if you donated about $25 of that $100k. That’s no joke. I love Elon and what he did here but ya, that amount of money is quite literally inconsequential to him
(Edit to say me and boom box typed these out at that same time before either was posted lol)
It's 5% of one billion, so yeah, I'm only off by about 99 billion 😂 I googled it and didn't realize the answer was for one billion, instead of 100 billion.
the thing is though he doesn't just have 196b in hand, so it's not accurate measurment
True. I don't care how much he has, if he donates to help sick kids, he's a hero in my eyes.
You shouldn't label him a hero just because he gives more money than you have. It's for a great cause and of course I'm happy to see it happen, but he's not *a hero* for it. If he worked the rest of his life to help sick kids and donated huge sums of his wealth constantly to them, ***that*** would make him a hero.
Stop trying to determine what people should think lol wtf
If he helps one child, he's a hero. You're welcome to your opinion, but I'll keep mine, thank you.
Agreed, I happened to be on Twitter last night so when he posted that it came up on my feed immediately. It was moving, especially in the context of the situation
Well that’s true of anyone worth more than a couple grand really.
I dont care about the money i care about the child workers making the battery
I agree - 50 million helps a TON. Sure he could give more but he also could’ve given nothing.
You realize Jeff Bezos gave away 200mil right after returning from space. And he has given 200mil to the Smithsonian back in July.
They should fist fight to the death to see which one is the last billionaire standing.
The winner gets ownership of the others businesses and their wealth is donated to kids cancer
At least 665 people, so far.
I could careless what people do with their money. But I do not idiolize them either 🤟🏽
I could careful what people do.
Maybe learn To write in English 🤟🏽
Oh Indian. Cool Bro
You don't have room to criticize someone else's English.
Acknowledging A good deed, is far from idolizing someone.
You’re an Elon fan boy… Bezos donates plenty so stfu https://www.cbsnews.com/news/charity-donations-richest-lowest-9-years/
I promised my wife I wouldn't talk to idiots today, so I have to block you.
Hmm i am the idiot 🤔🤔🤔 but you post a thing about Bezos not being charitable when he TOP THE LIST OF MOST DONATIONS LAST YEAR so go live in your fantasy world you moron.
There's more than 50 million in one of Elon's wet farts.
Do the math. What's 50 million of 197 billion? It's about the same as 1 cent is to someone who makes 100k/year. We're going to felate him for that? Have higher standards.
It’s actually about 26 dollars for 100k net worth. But yes it’s still barely anything in terms of percentage of net worth
lol so the did the math and still got it wrong. Oh noes
Do the math? You’re talking about farts and if you’re assigning a dollar value to the chemical composition of someone’s fart without hard chemistry calculations, the you sir, are mistaken
Show me transaction!
So much money….. freaks
So the guy who built the yacht is what, chopped liver?
Wait, how is that relevant?
It's not your money, why would you care? If you think charities need more money then create something wildly successful and donate your money to it.
Or I could just continue doing what I'm doing and not take the advice of a salty stranger....
The salty one is the one that doesn't care how other people spend their money? Interesting thought!
Elon still sucks.
Bezos always reminded me of Dr Evil
I will never unsee it now!
Poor Elon...he will have to work whole 2 days to earn that money back.
1 day, maybe
Yeah, also it’s not “work” for him, not really, at least.
No two people are, what's your point? Why assume judgement, do you know who or what he's donated to? Does it really matter what someone purchases? We'd all be better off if people learned to mind there own business.
Or I could just do what I'm doing. Why don't you start by taking your own advice? 😂
Those YouTube ads on kids videos got to Elon.
Bezos has his own charities. Not all humans are the same .
Elon cucks forget the children that have died in elons cobalt mines. Or how it isn't his money he's donating. It's his workers.
Do only good Everyday
Both are tax right offs
Jeff Bezos donated 200 million to two men with the goal of them directing those funds to non profit charities, 200 million to the Smithsonian museum in Washington DC and has pledged to donate 10 billion by 2030 to fight climate change in 2021 so far…. Stop listening to ignorant whiners who don’t do research before putting other people down…. As to date Jeff Bezos has donated the most of any human on this planet to organizations to improve our planet and local communities and his ex wife has done allot of donating too.
Shoulda donated 50 mil to those kids that are mining his cobalt.
well find out what the tax take back he gets with that donation. lol this meme is stupid. there is a reason why billionaires dontate. becasue there is a return.
Downvote it and move on then.
lol malding over your hero.
yeah you should get some help for that.
Next week we will complain that they pay no taxes..
Elon spent his own money to make SpaceX to save the US space program and make humans a multiplanetary species.
Bezos rode a giant penis into the upper atmosphere and called it space
Neither can pay all their workers a living wage. Quite a paradox
Neither want to pay all their workers a living wage.
Actually Amazon starts at $18/hour now. The hate against both Elon and Bezos is pretty unjustified.
He also live in a 400 square foot house called a Boxable.
Who else is gonna buy a super yacht? If I was That wealthy I would buy one and donate on top.
What does this even have to do with doge?
What does Elon have to do with Doge? Have you been living under a rock?
So we need to know everything he does now? This literally has nothing to do with Doge.
What an angel
Look up billionaire Chuck Feeney … dude gave away 90% of all his wealth to charities
This is like posting “person worth $100,000 donates $5 to charity!” What a sacrifice!
But the Yacht kept thousands of people employed so they could care for their families too.
All billionaires do that, that's how they become billionaires.
To be fair, Bezo's split HIS fortune with his ex wife and she donated much of HIS money. It wasn't her money and never will be (because it's donated away now). Being forced to split your wealth via family courts is basically an additional tax/forcible donation.
I wouldn't donate a damn dime either if I was in his shoes after being cleaned out!
She earned every bit of that money.
Sorry, your ex-wife donating money, doesn't make you a better person.
Musk is pure class.
It's really awesome he donated so much to help sick kids.
Great human being.
It'd be nice if he treated his employees as actual people
800 million \*\*\*\*
Elon can still get himself a $450 million super yatch with the money left over
But he lives in a box. He doesn't indulge.
Sorry I don't understand what you're trying to say.
This meme is here only because Musk has supported Doge and nothing else and it’s content is untrue and unfair. While I hate Amazon and Bezos, he gave 10 bn to his earth fund and 100mil to Feeding America just this year. If you can make memes you probably can google facts as well.
The bald guy is playing gta5 while the guy with hair is playing something else
Bro Bezos donates a lot let’s be clear on that
It’s like one will become Batman and the other will become lex Luthor
Definitely there some with heart of gold and there are some like Bezo. But I ain’t judging he earn his money and he can spend it how he like to spend it, but I like the ones with heart of gold.
No billionaire is a hero tho lol
I just want to point out that Bezos gave away something like 400m in July alone.
Lol they still don't pay more taxes than a school teacher
best case elon is a troll. worst case he has already convinced you he is a good guy and he has a malicious plan like every other billionaire. I'll let you run the odds
Marking it off a tax deduction for charity. Saving more than 50 mil. We middle and lower should pat ourselves on the back in America for playing along with taxes. At least we're participating. Mostly unwillingly.
Inspiration4 was a fundraiser for St. Jude. Space X provided the means to get them into space. Im not at all surprised by his donation and its more than likely amortized over several years.
A guy that is worth over $193 billion. That's like a person who makes $50k donates $10. It's nothing but PR.
>Another cause that got outsize attention from billionaire philanthropists: Climate change. Jeff Bezos topped the list by donating **$10 billion** to launch the Bezos Earth Fund. Bezos, who last week announced he was stepping down as Amazon CEO to devote more time to philanthropy and other projects, also contributed **$100 million to Feeding America**, the organization that supplies more than 200 food banks.
Musk bought his yacht yesterday though
50 million is chump change. but great publicity
St Judes still has a pretty sweet 50 million dollar yacht
One is selfish one is not ....
They are billionaires...
One donated 10 Billion to a Climate Change fund in 2020. Guess who. If you say Elon you're wrong. I like both of these guys and don't get the hate. I think most of the haters are just jelly. I try not to care how others spend their money.
That’s what people with hair do!!!
Has Bezos ever donated before?
Yeah plenty, but it is his money why do people care what he does with it https://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-bezos-amazon-how-much-donations-charity-2019-5
That’s what I’m saying if he has in the past why are they on his case. Just because he hasn’t lately..let this man do him obviously he’s out of our realm of circles who cares what he does.
Because this is a Dogecoin subreddit and most on here are Elon fanatics…..
