PayPal Offers To Donate To Charity On Behalf Of One-Time Quadrillionaire

As we heard on Tuesday, after a man mistakenly received a PayPal balance of $92 quadrillion — only to see that error swiftly reversed— he said he donated to a local campaign in a fit of generosity, despite not really being mega rich. In that spirit, PayPal now says it’ll donate on his behalf to the charity or cause of his choice. It’s not going to be quite a quadrillion bucks, of course: “It didn’t have as many zeroes, but it’s a significant donation,” said the one-time quadrillionaire. [via the Daily News]
