SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk is donating $50-million to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of the Inspiration4 space mission fundraiser. He announced the pledge after the four all-civilian crew members returned safely to Earth, tweeting, “Count me in for $50M.”
The fundraiser was launched by billionaire tech entrepreneur Jared Isaacman, who bought the flight with SpaceX and donated $100 to the cause himself. Between that, Musk’s contribution and the $60-million donated by the public, $210-million was raised for children’s cancer research.
