Mark Zuckerberg is giving away 99 percent of his Facebook shares towards advancing human potential and promoting equality. Now that he's officially a Father of his first-born baby girl 'Max', Zuckerberg and his Wife Priscilla Chan plan on raising their child in a newfound world where 'change' is available for everyone to embrace.

“We believe all lives have equal value, and that includes the many more people who will live in future generations than live today. Our society has an obligation to invest now to improve the lives of all those coming into this world, not just those already here.”

So, the question still remains: What is 99% of Zuckerberg's Facebook shares worth?

Approximately $45 billion USD.

“Advancing human potential is about pushing the boundaries on how great a human life can be,” while “Promoting equality is about making sure everyone has access to these opportunities — regardless of the nation, families or circumstances they are born into.”

Don't believe us? Feel free to read it from the man himself here. Too good to be true? Or can you actually believe this? Leave your thoughts below.
