Jeff Bezos Has Been Called ‘Cheap’ for Donating Rs 4.8 Crore to Australian Bushfire Crisis

Jeff Bezos, one of the richest people in the world and CEO of Amazon, has donated 1 million AU for the Australian bushfire crisis which have already killed at least 27 people and more than a billion animals over the last few weeks.

Bezos, who is worth $117 billion, donated only 1 million Australian dollars, which can roughly be translated to 4.8 crores in INR or 690,000 dollars in US currency. He confirmed the donation in an Instagram post where he wrote, “Our hearts go out to all Australians as they cope with these devastating bushfires. Amazon is donating 1 million AU dollars in needed provisions and services. Find more about it and learn how customers can help as well.”
