Jeff Bezos (53), a multi-billionaire, CEO and Amazon headmaster, became the Richest Man in the world last Thursday. Nevertheless, with his wealth over $90 billion, he works hard to help other people and improve their living conditions, claiming that his main aim is not to become rich, but to change this world for the better.

Bezos still thinks about the ways to spend his money well. It is worth noting that for a long time he has been famous as a scrooge who rarely takes part in charities, while his brother, Mark Bezos, is a volunteer having the anti-poverty organization Robin Hood.

Anyway, some time ago Jeff Bezos mentioned that he wanted to share his wealth with social services for help.

The way to fame and wealth

Bezos got his first salary from Amazon selling books from the garage in 1995. He has always been interested in culture, technology, and media. Now he managed to become more wealthy than Bill Gates in less than 7 years. For the last 30 years, he became the sixth man among the "richest person" title, as Forbes reported.

Before, he put much money to build the most luxurious residence from the Textile Museum in Washington.Jeff Bezos made a great breakthrough for the last two years. As the Forbes stated, the first time when Bezos appeared in its list was in 1998 with $1.6 billion.

In 9 years he achieved the sum of $4.4 billion, then he managed to have $18.4 billion by 2012. Now his current situation has grown again - only for 2 years, he made $45 billion - unbelievable speed.

New goals and ambitions

Apart from being the Amazon headmaster, he owns the Washington Post and a young company Blue Origin LLC, in which he invests millions of dollars from Amazon.

Bezos graduated from the Princeton University, he mastered the field in electrical engineering and computer science. He is believed to staying focused on long-term goals and paying much attention to all the details. At the same time, he is reserved and does not give interviews often. Anyway, the recent time shows that Bezos has not had a desire to give any grants to his workers, which showed that he has not cared about their needs.

But now Bezos seems to think more about others. In June he even asked the followers on Twitter to give him various ideas for charity."I'm thinking I want much of my philanthropic activity to be helping people in the here and now -- short term -- at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact," Bezos tweeted.
