The whole planet foundation is modeling great leadership in it's partnership with the grameen Bank. By providing micro-credits to poor woman in developing nations, families are rising out of Poverity. Many fail to comprehend that 4 of the 6 billion of us on the planet live in poverty. Conscious Capitalism is the visionary path for the success of our future corporations. Kudos to the foundations for helping to pave the way! J hochberg Http://treesforhumanity. Org
