Mark Zuckerberg Donates $25 Million To Help CDC Fight Ebola

Today, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are donating $25 million to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight the Ebola epidemic that has killed over 4,000 people.

In a Facebook post, Zuckerberg wrote:

According to the CDC Foundation's website, the donation would be used to "provide much-needed supplies and equipment for use on the ground in West Africa," like protection equipment, thermal scanners at airports to detect temperature, and ready-to-eat meals.

Here's hoping the money will help the frontline responders save lives and contain the outbreak.
