The former president, provocative film producer, Black Eyed Peasfrontman and others have teamed up to launch and support MASSIVEGOOD, a micro-contribution initiative that allows travelers to help fight HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria every time they book a flight or hotel, or rent a car. Created by the Millennium Foundationand launched on March 4 by President Clinton at the United Nations, MASSIVEGOOD has the potential to raise millions for global health.
