NEW YORK (AP) – Another 17 wealthy individuals, including Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, junk bond pioneer Michael Milken and AOL co-founder Steve Case, have pledged to give away most of their money.

They are the latest to join Giving Pledge, an effort led by Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates and investor Warren Buffett to commit the world’s wealthiest people to step up their charitable donations.

The list now totals 57 people and their families.

It includes the likes of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, CNN founder Ted Turner and film director George Lucas.
