Send the world's billionaires a message: Even it up
To end the injustice of poverty for good, we need an economy that works for everyone, not just the few.
The world’s 1,810 billionaires have the power and influence to help make it happen.

The global economy is broken
Eight billionaires own the same wealth as half the world’s population. That’s right – eight individuals own as much as the poorest 3.6 billion people. Meanwhile, every day 1 in 9 people go to bed hungry.
Such extreme inequality is outrageous. Families living in poverty around the world are forced to suffer impossibly low wages, inhumane working conditions, and a total lack of even the most basic public services like water, education and healthcare. Governments are doing too little to help. And all the while, the usual suspects make billions from a system bent in their favour.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can choose another future. A future where governments act to help everyone, where people are put before profits, and everyone is given a fair chance. We can help end poverty, and the rich and powerful need to play their part.
Send billionaires a message: help build an economy that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
