Businesses Microsoft Co-founder Pledges $30 Million To House Seattle's Homeless (cnn.com)

Homeless to migrate to Seattle?

Paul Allen, a founder of Microsoft has pledged $30 million to house Seattle's homeless.

 From a report: 

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said Wednesday the city was partnering with Paul G. Allen's family foundation to build a facility to house homeless families with children. Allen's foundation will provide $30 million toward the development of the facility, while the city of Seattle has pledged $5 million for its maintenance and operation. It will be owned and operated by Mercy Housing Northwest, a nonprofit housing organization. Seattle is in King County, which has 1,684 families that are homeless, according to the mayor's announcement. More than 3,000 homeless children were enrolled in Seattle's public schools during the 2015-2016 year, it said.

Now if more 1%ers were as kind we could end homelessness.
