Lauren Sanchez, the girlfriend of the co-founder of Amazon and the second richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, needs "a little space". She is not planning to move away from her rich billionaire boyfriend, nor is she planning a trip to private islands or lavish metropolises, she wants to go where her billionaire boyfriend went: into space.
Sanchez and her company are about to leave Earth's orbit. A helicopter pilot herself and owner of aerial film production company Black Ops Aviation, she said in an interview with CNN that she will be accompanied on her space adventure by "a great group of females." Jeff Bezos undoubtedly inspired his girlfriend.
After all, the tycoon himself flew to the edge of space on the first flight of Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket, choosing to have his man on board: brother Mark Bezos. Bezos then posted a heartfelt note on Instagram to mark the momentous occasion: “Since I was five years old, I've dreamed of traveling into space.
On July 20th, I'm going on this trip with my brother. The greatest adventure, with my best friend."
Difficult part is determining how to use his fortune
"It's not easy," the billionaire explained. "Building Amazon was not easy.
It took a lot of hard work, a bunch of very smart teammates, hard-working teammates, and I'm finding — and I think Lauren is finding the same thing — that charity, philanthropy, is very similar." Lauren Sanchez talked about her upcoming trip to space with her friends during the same interview in which Bezos revealed his plans to give away most of his $124 billion fortune to charity during his lifetime.
So far, Sanchez has not revealed the composition of the "big crew of women" who will take part in the space trip planned for 2023. Needless to say, we are anxiously awaiting the names. "Both Jeff and Lauren are really energized by the work they are doing in philanthropy," the insider said in June 2021.
"You can see and hear their excitement when they meet with partners on the climate, education and homelessness work." "There are a bunch of ways that I think you could do ineffective things, too," Bezos told CNN when announcing for the first time his decision to give away his fortune. "So you have to think about it carefully and you have to have brilliant people on the team."
