Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg became a father to a daughter. Meet Maxima Chan Zuckerberg, Zuckerberg and Dr Priscilla Chan’s first child, who was welcomed in the world with nothing but a Facebook post.
Zuckerberg wrote a loving letter to his daughter announcing her birth to the world. Through this letter filled with love, hope and promises, Max’s parents elaborated on the changes that they wish to see in the world their daughter grows in. You can take a complete look at this beautiful letter here:
The most surprising announcement that was made through this letter was Zuckerberg and Chan pledging 99% of their Facebook shares to charity during their lives through their organization ‘Chan Zuckerberg Initiaitive’. Amounting to a whopping $45 billion, it is one of the biggest charitable gestures in the history.
The co-founder of Facebook also advocated the idea of paternity leave by announcing in November that he will be taking two weeks paternity leave. He definitely has set an example for those who do not pay much attention to their family life stressing about their job or profession.
His gesture is definitely an inspiration for the entire world.
We congratulate Mark Zuckerberg and wish his family a life filled with happiness and health.
