MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has donated more than $4bn in the past four months to hundreds of charities and aid organisations fighting the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The Guardian reports that Scott, who has a personal net worth of more than $60bn, and who pledged to give away much of her wealth after her divorce settlement with Bezos last year said she had decided to “accelerate” her donations this year and has now donated a total of $6 billion to food banks, emergency relief funds, and support for the most vulnerable as well as debt relief, employment training and education for “historically marginalised and underserved people”, civil rights groups, and legal defence funds.
