Space X became the first private company to successfully launch, orbit, and recover a spacecraft, as well as the first to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS).

With the CEO holding a net worth of $165.4 billion as of last year, according to Forbes.

Musk passed Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, in the world’s richest list after Tesla was selected to join the S&P 500, a stock market index that measures the performance of 500 large companies listed on the U.S stock exchange, at the end of last year.

The statistics showed that Musk only needed another $8 billion to knock Gates out of 2nd place.

And, not even one week after Tesla’s induction to the prestigious S&P 500, Musk’s net worth soared to $127.9 billion, while Gates’ lagged behind.

Experts say it was a result of Tesla’s share price rising, which he owns a twenty percent stake of.

An increase that comes just days after finishing the first trading session of the year where they saw an increase of 3.4 percent.

That says it all, doesn’t it?

Well, he simply tweeted, “how strange.”

“Well, back to work…”

The eccentric entrepreneur has taken to Twitter once more to seek a little bit of financial advice.

“Btw, critical feedback is always super appreciated, as well as ways to donate money that really make a difference (way harder than it seems).”

Yep, in perhaps the most Elon Musk move ever, he has asked the Twitter community to suggest ways in which he can donate his wealth…

And, of course, they responded with gusto.  

The dog rating page, We Rate Dogs, was quick to respond by stressing that a number of animal shelters could do with the donations. “Sir I have a long list of rescue organizations and underfunded shelters if you’re interested.”

A small COVID-19 relief fund founded by Barstool Sports.

Writing: “There are so many children and adults in the USA without insurance but still need bionic arms. Help us give them Hero Arms.”

Such as Northern Tanzania, where people are working hard at supplying the villages with solar panels and a stable internet connection.

Including Blue Dragon, a foundation that delivers aid to children in crisis in Vietnam.

You can’t blame a guy for trying, can you?
