What has happened in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Irma striking it in September is appalling. Recovery efforts have been hampered by a number of factors and many people, months later, still do not have electricity or access to clean water. Glen Wakeman has been a leader who has been pressuring corporations to assist in the efforts to help the people of Puerto Rico. One of the organizations that has been doing good work in Puerto Rico is The American Red Cross.
In addition to donating $1000 himself to the American Red Cross, Glen Wakeman has been trying to convince as many other top executives as he can to also financially contribute. He says that in an increasingly interconnected world he and other successful people have a moral duty to help those who at the present time have no way of taking care of themselves.
