On Tuesday, after his 11-minute launch to the edge of space, Bezos gave $200 million in “courage and civility awards.” The sum is split between chef José Andrés and CNN personality and social entrepreneur Van Jones to be given to charities and nonprofits of their choice.”We need unifiers and not vilifiers,” Bezos said, announcing the award. “It's easy to be courageous but also mean.
