Zuckerberg, Wife Donates Towards Fight Against Ebola.

The founder of Facebook Inc. Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan has donated $25 Million towards the cause to combat Ebola. The aim of the donation to the CDC Foundation, the non-profit arm of the United States' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is to accelerate the Centres' response & support to combat Ebola scourge in West African countries mostly affected by the disease; countries like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. 

According to the CDC foundation, the monies would also be channeled to "anywhere in the world where Ebola poses a threat to health"

Kudos to Zuckerberg and wife...I'm hoping other moguls and magnates would follow suit to help Africa out of this predicament.
