The last time a global survey was attempted - by the United Nation in 2005 - an estimated 100 million people were homeless worldwide and as many as 1 billion people lacked adequate housing.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that about 795 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world, or one in nine, were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2014-2016.
More than 200 million children worldwide under age 5 do not get basic health care, leading to nearly 10 million deaths annually from treatable ailments like diarrhea and pneumonia.
Running a business, making money, is challenging and fun. It gives our lives purpose and feeds our families. But along with owning a business comes responsibility, a moral obligation, if you will, to share the prosperity. Bill Gates knows it, Mark Zuckerberg knows it.
