Facing Up

On Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced the birth of their first child, a daughter named Max. In a lengthy letter posted on Facebook, Zuckerberg and Chan discussed the problems facing the world today, and announced the creation of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a philanthropy organization that will address "advancing human potential and promoting equality."

They also said they will donate 99% of their Facebook shares, worth some $45 billion, to the causes taken up by the new initiative, which initially will include "personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities.” 

Given this initiative we could all help this cause. Everyone of us has the ability to build a stronger community. We are all part of it. We can all do our part.
