So many people that are doing nothing feel comfortable attacking people that are doing something because they don’t like how they’re doing it. In this case, it seems like a good bet that the person that wrote this article and the website that they work for, Gizmodo, has done precisely dick to help curb the Coronavirus. Yet, when billionaire Jack Ma put up 14 million dollars of his own money to help develop a vaccine, their response was this:
Jack Ma Donates $14 Million For Coronavirus Vaccine, Like Average U.S. Family Donating $33
Tech billionaire Jack Ma has donated $14.5 million to help develop a vaccine for the new coronavirus that has killed at least 170 people and sickened over 7,700. Ma is China’s wealthiest person with an estimated $41.8 billion, which means that his donation is roughly equivalent to the average American household donating $33.
Ma founded Alibaba, the world’s largest online retailer, and is often compared to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. And with Ma’s relatively tiny donation, we can now see the similarities in more ways than one.
