David Beasley, director of the United Nations' World Food Program, has called on a small group of ultra-wealthy individuals to help solve world hunger with a fraction of their money.
(Billionaires need to) step up now, on a one-time basis...$6 billion to help 42 million people that are literally going to die if we don't reach them. It's not complicated.David Beasley
Beasley suggests that people such as Amazon owner Jeff Bezos and Tesla boss Elon Musk could help. Musk has a net worth of nearly $289 billion, according to Bloomberg, meaning that Beasley is asking for a donation of 2% of his fortune.
