Today, April 20th, Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) launched a new online tool called "Your Stock, Your Voice."

This is part of A Fair Shot campaign, through which MSF has been campaigning to ask Pfizer and GSK to lower the price of the pneumonia vaccine to $5 per child (for all three doses) for all developing countries.

Most people don't know offhand if they actually have investments in Pfizer and GSK through their retirement plans (i.e. 401k's) or mutual funds. "Your Stock Your Voice" makes it easy for users to verify if they have investments in the companies and prompts them to take action. The key here is to not ask people to divest, but to actually leverage their investor status to hold the companies accountable. This transforms people from passive into active investors.

Through this tool, we are revealing the hidden power of your investments, and opening a new channel for people to make their voices heard and get pharmaceutical companies to lower vaccine prices.

Check it out here: http://afairshot.org

Please help us spread the word by sharing this tool on Facebook, Twitter, or emailing folks who might be interested!

The more investors we reveal, the more likely Pfizer and GSK will do the right thing.
