'This pandemic has been a wrecking ball in the lives of Americans already struggling. Economic losses and health outcomes alike have been worse for women, for people of color, and for people living in poverty. Meanwhile, it has substantially increased the wealth of billionaires,' the 50-year-old wrote in a post on Medium on Tuesday (December 15).

Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, one of the world's richest people, has re-married after her 2019 divorce from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. It's been a turbulent two years for Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez. In January 2019, the bombshell news broke that the Amazon CEO and his wife, MacKenzie, were getting a divorce.

'Some are filling basic needs: food banks, emergency relief funds, and support services for those most vulnerable,' she posted. 'Others are addressing long-term systemic inequities that have been deepened by the crisis: debt relief, employment training, credit and financial services for under-resourced communities, education for historically marginalized and underserved people, civil rights advocacy groups, and legal defense funds that take on institutional discrimination.'

MacKenzie added, 'If you’re craving a way to use your time, voice, or money to help others at the end of this difficult year, I highly recommend a gift to one of the thousands of organizations doing remarkable work all across the country. Every one of them could benefit from more resources to share with the communities they’re serving. And the hope you feed with your gift is likely to feed your own.'

Bloomberg has MacKenzie as having a net worth of $60.9 billion, making her the 18th richest person in the world.

MacKenzie Scott is married!

According to The Wall Street Journal, MacKenzie married Seattle school teacher Dan Jewett on Sunday (March 7).

MacKenzie's ex-husband Jeff Bezos congratulated the couple in a statment to WSJ.

'Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them,' Jeff told the outlet.

Jeff and MacKenzieannounced their divorce in January 2019 after 25 years of marriage. She pledged to give half her $37 billion fortune to charity after their split and donated the money to Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates initiative Giving Pledge.

Dan added his name to the Giving Pledge website on Saturday (March 6) and wrote in a statement on the site, 'It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have particular meaning.'

'I have been a teacher for the majority of my life, as well as a grateful student of the generosity of those around me. This has meant doing my best to follow their example by passing on resources of all kinds—from time, to energy, to material possessions—when I have had them to give,' he continued.

'And now, in a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know — and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others.'
