An Open Letter to Jeff Bezos

July 06, 2017

Roger Williams University (RI) President Donald J. Farish writes:  On June 15, The New York Times published an interview with Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, in which he was asked about his philanthropic interests, now that his net worth exceeds an estimated $80 billion. His philanthropic giving to date has been modest by the standards of many other multibillionaires.  Bezos responded, “If you have any ideas, just reply to this tweet …”  Within a day, Bezos had received more than 18,000 replies. No doubt the flood of tweets will continue unabated for days to come. Yet it’s very difficult to compress a good idea into the 140-character limit of a tweet.
With that in mind, I offer my own suggestion.
