Michael Bloomberg's charitable foundation is committing $220 Million to the anti-smoking effort! That'll be a HUGE help!
What fab news!
This includes the funding of legal challenges against the industry!
Bloomberg said that the focus will be on low and moderate-income countries where nearly 80 percent of smokers live, like Russia, China, India, Indonesia and Bangladesh — which we're totally fine with.
Everyone everywhere deserves a smoke-free world and a reprieve from the most avoidable cause of health issues and death out there!
We're just wondering how China is going to react to this, as they're the biggest producer and consumer of tobacco with more than 300 million smokers.
Probably won't be very happy about it.
Either way, we really feel like this is great news!
