Jack Dorsey to donate $1 billion to fight coronavirus and advice from a 1918 pandemic survivor: Making an authentic Maundy Thursday today

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter

Jack Dorsey, the CEO and cofounder of Twitter and Square, has announced plans to donate $1 billion to fight the coronavirus outbreak. This is the largest pledged gift by a private individual yet during the pandemic.

He will contribute roughly 30 percent of his estimated net worth. He notes that all of his gift’s donations will be tracked through a public Google Sheet. 

Dorsey explains the timing of his commitment: “The needs are increasingly urgent, and I want to see the impact in my lifetime. I hope this inspires others to do something similar. Life is too short, so let’s do everything we can today to help people now.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
