What if you could save millions of lives while living your own?
New York. 23rd of September, 2009 at the UN. In the presence of Ban Ki Moon and many heads of state, Gordon Brown opened the session on innovative financing for health. In the middle of an economic recession, public monies will no longer be able to address the enormousness of need. The Presidents of Tanzania, Nepal, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile stood as witnesses. At 3:40 pm, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bernard Kouchner and UN Under-Secretary-General, Philippe Douste-Blazy took the floor to announce the birth of a substantive worldwide initiative: the launch of the biggest private effort to raise money to attain the health objectives of the “Millennium Development Goals” fixed by the UN in order to eradicate malaria, tuberculosis and to treat AIDS. The below film was projected to great applause, as well as the travel professionals present at the UN who, as partners of the project, received a standing ovation. The MASSIVEGOOD movement has officially been launched! The movement concerns all inhabitants of the planet: thanks to the reservation systems (Amadeus, Sabre and Galileo) who have renounced their fierce competition in the name of MASSIVEGOOD. Now, thanks to partnerships with airline companies, as well as online and retail travel agencies, anyone who takes a plane can choose to contribute $2 or (2€ or 2£) when they pay for their tickets, with a simple click. The funds raised will be managed by UNITAID (part of the World Health Organization), the fund that is currently managing the tax on plane tickets that is in place in some 20 countries. UNITAID works with some of the best on the ground health organizations (like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Clinton Foundation and UNICEF, among others). The fundraising potential for MASSIVEGOOD is, well, massive—especially because the idea of a micro contribution could spread to other forms of consumption of products and services. This is a great way to do some massive good for other while continuing to live your life normally.
