Replying to an open letter Zuckerberg wrote to his daughter, Max, on Facebook, Melinda Gates commented, “Congratulations—we’re thrilled for both of you! Raising children is a great adventure and the best thing we have ever done together. You will be fantastic parents. As for your decision to give back so generously, and to deepen your commitment now, the first word that comes to mind is: Wow. The example you’re setting today is an inspiration to us and the world.”

The portion of Facebook shares that Zuckerberg and Chan plan to give away is currently valued at $45 billion.
