Super yachts or super typhoon?

UN are begging for $301m in aid for the people of the philippines affected by the super-typhoon.

The worlds 100 richest people in 2012 sat on $240 bn.

If the worlds 100 richest gave the un $301 mn in aid it would (worst case scenario) cost them 9 days worth of interest.

But when it comes down to it, why should something like a little disaster in the world set them back 9 days worth of interest (when they're not in the slightest bit affected) and there are super yachts to buy?

Pop over to the international federation of red cross and red crescent societies to see what you can do.
