It says "Bezos" in the title below, but he was donating Amazon's $690,000, not his own. Metallica gave $750,000.

Cheap Billionaire Jeff Bezos Donates Less Than Metallica to Devastating Australian Bushfires Recovery
By Luke Darby - January 13, 2020
Amazon, which paid $0 in taxes, made more than $11 billion in profit in 2018—almost 16,000 times as much as the $690,000 donation. Bezos himself could afford to contribute a great deal. By Business Insider's calculations, Bezos's income grew by $34 million per day in the past three months, meaning Bezos made approximately $690,000 every 30 minutes give or take.
By contrast, makeup entrepreneur and lesser billionaire Kylie Jenner and Elton John contributed $1 million each to Australian wildlife relief, while Metallica donated $750,000. That's right, an '80s hair band contributed approximately $60,000 more than one of the most profitable companies on the planet. And earlier in January, Kaylen Ward, a California-based Instagram model, offered to send one nude photo to every follower who forwarded her a receipt for $10 or more in donations to a charity dedicated to the Australian fires. She helped raise an estimated $700,000 before Instagram deleted her account.
