Richest man in the world has launched a $2 billion fund to help the homeless

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, richest man in the world, and his wife have launched a $2 billion fund to help the homeless.

They will create a network of nonprofit preschools in low-income communities.

Jeff Bezos ($164 billion) has a higher net worth then Bill Gates ($98 billion) and Mark Zuckerberg ($64 billion) combined.

They have two strategies.

* they will fund existing nonprofits and issue annual awards to organizations doing “compassionate, needle-moving work” to shelter and support the immediate needs of young families.
* they will operate a network of high-quality, full-scholarship Montessori-inspired preschools.

The fund’s vision statement comes from nonprofit Mary’s Place in Seattle: no child sleeps outside.
