MacKenzie Bezos, worth more than $36 billion after divorcing Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos, announced on Tuesday that she will give at least half of her fortune to charity.

Bezos’s promise came by signing the Giving Pledge, an initiative founded in 2010 by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett that encourages the world’s wealthiest people to donate more than half of their wealth to charitable causes.

“There are lots of resources each of us can pull from our safes to share with others,” the fiction author stated in a letter published on the Giving Pledge website.

“In addition to whatever assets life has nurtured in me, I have a disproportionate amount of money to share,” MacKenzie Bezos added. “My approach to philanthropy will continue to be thoughtful. It will take time and effort and care. But I won’t wait. And I will keep at it until the safe is empty.”

Good for her. Yes, she'll be able to scrape by on her remaining $19+ billion, but still... she didn't have to do it.
