Recently, Jeff Bezos has donated $98.5 million to thirty-two organizations that support and help the homeless. This organization has a wide range and is spread over twenty-three states. However, a lot of people are commenting that the amount that Jeff has donated is nothing compared to his all over wealth.
Jeff Facing Harsh Critics Even After A Generous Donation!
Jeff made this generous donation on his Bezos Day One Fund which was announced in September 2018. Although a lot of people on the internet we’re not quite eager to praise Jeff. According to these online critics, Jeff has donated a very minimum amount considering his own wealth. Among these critics is UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn. He pointed it out in a tweet on Sunday that the amount of Bezos’ latest donation represents only “0.09%” of the billionaire’s net worth.
Jeremy also followed up with a mocking call for Bezos about paying his taxes on time. This statement is likely a reference to the fact that Amazon did not pay in federal taxes for 2018 despite reporting profits of more than $11 billion before taxes for that year.
Jeff Bezos Criticised For Not Paying Proper Tax!
