    Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos are donating $10 million to the With Honor Fund, a nonpartisan super PAC that aims to help elect veterans to the US House of Representatives, the fund announced on Wednesday.
    Bezos’ charitable gifts are relatively rare, but they have been well-timed in the past. 
    Supporting a PAC focused on veterans could be well-received by the Pentagon, which will soon decide on which company receives the $10 billion JEDI cloud-computing contract.
    Amazon, the company Bezos leads as CEO, chairman, and president, is currently seen as a frontrunner for the contract, but it faces competition.
