Chump change

Facebook is selling people’s data for billions and donate a million. What a generous man! Whenever they need to cover up of a mess they make a donation (a peanut) .

A million dollars wouldn't even be enough to fund double blind, placebo controlled testing of the HDT protocol, not even close! Yes, very generous....not!!!

Assuming he is worth 45.5 billion, as they state, that one million dollar donation is approximately

1 / 45,000th of his worth. If your net worth is a million dollars, 1 / 45,000th would be roughly equivalent to $22!

Wooow. Even more generous!

It's more than I donated to Parkinson's research this year.

That is nothing in his wealth of millions . He can very easily give one half of his wealth .

Well, still I say: Thank You. He could've donated it anywhere, or not donated it all. Do not look a gift horse in the mouth!

This comment may never make it BUT I say thank you Mr. Zuckerberg. To HELL with those who are B**CHING. 1 Million is more than I'll ever be able to donate. I feel hopeless watching that cowboy of mine struggle with Parkinson's day and night. Kia17 he CHOSE to donate to this research! You mind telling us what was YOUR donation this year? I haven't donated ANYTHING. Coffeeday2017 . . . have you donated half of your worth? easilly, so you're PISSED because he's worth millions and ONLY donated 1 million! Whoa . . . What in the world is WRONG with you people? UNGRATEFUL ASSES! I am consistently DISAPPOINTED in the human race and wonder what the good LORD thinks of all this complaining!

Request to be careful with selection of words

Perhaps if you people were a bit more thankful then you all wouldn't have torqued my jaw.

Hold your horses. It’s not our fault that you donot follow news. Just google “Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal” to see how generous your hero is.

O, that's true. I'm from the South and as dumb as a box of rocks! I know very well what you people are saying. He's far from my idea of a hero. I'm simply saying thanks to him and everyone else who donates to Parkinson's research. FACEBOOK is one thing. My husband struggling with PARKINSONS is another!

Hi aridin1966. First, I commend your feistiness. For those of us struggling with Parkinson’s, long gone is our capacity for anger. Parkinson’s takes that away. But, don’t you think that labeling all southerners as dumb is wrong?

I was being extremely sarcastic. My grandfather had a 6th grade education, my father made it to the 8th. Neither man was CLOSE to being dumb. Although I do feel the South has been labeled, none of this has anything to do with Parkinson's. My concern is with my husband and all of those suffering with Parkinson's. As a caregiver, I get very angry watching, listening and reading. It's all so very frustrating.

Yes -thanks to Aridin 1966. Be grateful for every cent donated to help solve the terrible mysteries tormenting our partner's Parkinson's Disease. Boo to the rude HU members who will

prevent other wealthy people from donating. We need all the help we can get!

Thank you Mr Zuckerburg
