Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, at only 26, has become quite the billionaire philanthropist. After donating $100 million to Newark Public Schools and an unknown amount to Diaspora, an open social network project, the world’s youngest billionaire (whose worth is about $6.9 billion) is now promising to donate “most” of his wealth to charity, as a result of taking part in the ‘Giving Pledge.’

The ‘Giving Pledge’ is an initiative by Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, which has enlisted 57 other multi-millionaires and billionaires to donate more than half of their wealth to charity. Participants of the ‘Giving Pledge’ can make their donations either during their lifetimes or after death. Stats for Extreme Billionaire Donations Trending: Older & Chilly
