Talk about putting your money where your mouth is…According to NBC News, Mr. Facebook himself has donated in a major way to help fight against Ebola. Do you think that donating money is the best way to support causes? Check out Mark Zuckerberg’s statement below and take our poll.

 

“Priscilla and I are donating $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight Ebola.

The Ebola epidemic is at a critical turning point. It has infected 8,400 people so far, but it is spreading very quickly and projections suggest it could infect 1 million people or more over the next several months if not addressed.

We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn’t spread further and become a long-term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large-scale, like HIV or polio.

We believe our grant is the quickest way to empower the CDC and the experts in this field to prevent this outcome.

Grants like this directly help the frontline responders in their heroic work. These people are on the ground setting up care centers, training local staff, identifying Ebola cases and much more.

We are hopeful this will help save lives and get this outbreak under control.”
