If the big corporations help with, for example, 0.5% of their earnings. if you only have the top 10 companies would be 11 billion dollars. With that amount of money could bring food and supplies to the Philippines by Typhoon Haiyan.
Also, if every year donate that amount could fight hunger and disease in places like Africa, parts of Asia and Latin America.
We, the undersigned, call on big corporations and multinationals to help society (contributing 0.5% of their annual income), because, after all, they have become what they are today because of the global consumer.
