The UN Gives Elon Musk ‘Proof’ of How $6 Billion Would Help to End World Hunger

Share on Facebook

After Elon Musk gave the United Nations conditions for a $6 billion donation to help avert famine in 2022, the organization has now given Musk the “proof” he was seeking on how the donation will be used to help millions of people around the world.

If both parties can come to an agreement, then the work can begin as quick as 2022.

Read on to see a detailed outline of the plan…

Now, we all know that Musk was already a very wealthy man.

Being the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of not only Tesla but SpaceX too, he has an awful lot going for him.

Tesla is the world’s leading electric car company…

With almost 500,000 vehicles being bought and distributed in 2020 alone. The company is pioneering the future of electric car travel with Musk as its CEO.

And then there’s Space X…

Space X became the first private company to successfully launch, orbit, and recover a spacecraft, as well as the first to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS).

And due to his acomplishments, Musk has cashed in a serious amount of money since starting his businesses…

Back in January, according to the BBC, Musk finally became the richest man in the world, knocking Jeff Bezos out of 1st place.

Quite the achievement, I know!

However, the feud between Musk and Bezos has been ongoing all year, with the pair yoyoing between 1st and 2nd place.

Well, until recently that is…

Musk saw a jump of 4.9 percent for the stock price of Tesla at the start of the year – an increase that came just days after finishing the first trading session of the year where they saw an increase of 3.4 percent.

Musk’s net worth subsequently soared shortly after to a staggering $188 billion, as per Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index.

And with Jeff Bezos’ net worth standing at $187 billion, Elon Musk was ultimately placed as the world’s richest man.

Things just kept getting better for Musk, and as of September 7th, he was reportedly worth over $200 billion…

Making him the 3rd person in the world to ever reach that milestone, behind Jeff Bezos and Bernard Arnault, CEO of French luxury brands Moët Hennessy and Louis Vuitton.

A great achievement for Musk!

And of course, he went about the news in the most typical “Elon Musk” way.

In response to the news, he simply tweeted, “How strange”…

Before adding, “Well back to work.”

Then, almost a month after beating Bezos and becoming the world’s richest man…

He secured his position in 1st place.

On Monday, October 25th, Musk left his competitors in the dust as he reportedly gained a further $36 million…

Taking him up to a whopping $269 billion according to Forbes.

However, many Twitter users pointed out that he easily has enough funds to try and end world hunger…

Without even bankrupting him.

So, Musk responded to David Beasley, the director of the UN’s World Food Programme…

Beasley frequently pleaded with billionaires to help the hunger crisis.

He’s asking the world’s richest for $6 billion, which is said to help “42 million people that are literally going to die if we don’t reach them,” he told CNN.

In a series of tweets responding to Beasley, Musk agreed he’d help raise all the funds, just 2 percent of his wealth, but under 1 condition…

The UN will have to publically prove how his money will be spent in order to help avert famine…

Musk wrote: “If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.”

Responding to Musk, Beasley said they have “systems in place for transparency and open source accounting…”

And said that they could work together so that Musk was “totally confident of such.”

However, Beasley also stated…

“$6B will not solve world hunger, but it WILL prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation. An unprecedented crisis and a perfect storm due to Covid/conflict/climate crises.”

And, so, Beasley has now given Musk exactly what he wanted…

A plan so transparent that it not only makes it clear to Musk what the money will be spent on but to the entire population, too.

On the website, it states: “The World Food Programme (WFP) has issued a call to the world’s billionaires to donate US$6.6 billion to save 42 million people from famine. This is a breakdown of how this sum would be used.”

The WFP broke down the $6.6 billion into 4 parts.

$3.5 billion to buy food and its delivery, $2 billion for cash and food vouchers, $700 million for “country-specific costs to design, scale-up and manage” the implementation of programs that will help bring more food and cash flow into the lives of those who are starving, and $400 million to maintain management, administration, and accountability.

So, we think it’s time Musk starts looking into selling some Tesla stocks…

Don’t you?
