See how rich I am!

I'm loaded.
It's official.
I'm the 835,128,870 richest person on earth!

How rich are you? >>

$8 could buy you
  • 15 organic apples
  • OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.

$30 could buy you
  • an ER DVD Boxset
  • OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.

$73 could buy you
  • a new mobile phone
  • OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

$2400 could buy you
  • a second generation High Definition TV
  • OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village.

The world's 225 richest people now have a combined wealth of $1 trillion. That's equal to the combined annual income of the world's 2.5 billion poorest people.
