An Open Letter To Jeff Bezos: Use Your Resources To Protect Our Most Precious Resource

Jim Lauria

By Jim Lauria

Dear Mr. Bezos:

Economist Harold Pollack's New York Times article suggesting priorities for your philanthropic work was a fun read for those of us who would love to imagine what we would do with $131 billion. Unlike Pollack, I'm not going to tell you how to give away your money — you earned it, it's yours, and you can do what you want with it.

I'm more interested in addressing the challenge you tweeted last June, when you asked for ideas to guide philanthropy that can happen fast — as you described it, "at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact."
