Jeff Bezos received a donation of $ 690K for the recovery of forest fires in Australia

-

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos announced that the tech giant is donating to recovery efforts in Australia as fires sweep the continent, but many critics say the contribution is not enough.

On Sunday, Bezos revealed on Instagram that Amazon would donate $ 1 million Australian dollars, or $ 690,000 in US dollars, for "necessary supplies and services" in the midst of a forest fire crisis in the region.

"Our hearts are with all Australians as they face these devastating forest fires," Bezos wrote in his post.

Critics criticized Bezos for not doing more to help with recovery efforts in light of his vast wealth. According to Forbes 'list of real-time billionaires, Bezos' net worth is $ 116.7 billion.

"You can do better what a shame," Instagram user andre.florio wrote in a comment on Bezos' post. "For a company like Amazon, donating so little is an insult," Instagram user rorycodd said.

Twitter users also criticized the CEO of Amazon, noting that the donation represents a small fraction of his fortune.
