Mark Zuckerberg & Wife Welcome Baby Girl Max, Announce Plan to Donate 99% of Facebook Stock

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla have welcomed a baby girl, Max!

To announce the birth, the 31-year-old Facebook founder and his wife wrote a letter to their daughter making some huge promises to the world as a whole.

Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world! For her birth, we wrote a letter to her about the world we hope she grows up in,” Mark announced on his Facebook page.

“As you begin the next generation of the Chan Zuckerberg family, we also begin the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation. Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities,” Mark and Priscilla wrote. “We will give 99% of our Facebook shares — currently about $45 billion — during our lives to advance this mission. We know this is a small contribution compared to all the resources and talents of those already working on these issues. But we want to do what we can, working alongside many others.”

The entire letter to Max is quite lengthy. You can read it in full over on Facebook.

Congrats to Mark and Priscilla on the birth of their daughter!
