"Doctors without borders." "Doctors without credit limits." 8 May, 2006.

Reference Number: DCDL-0001442

Two doctors sit at their desks waiting to do consultations. The doctor with a notice saying that he is a doctor without borders has no patients. The other doctor who has a notice indicating that he has no credit limits has a huge crowd of people waiting to see him. American Express has made a deal with the New Zealand Medical association offering doctors a gold or platinum membership rewards credit card. With every purchase made American Express will make a contribution to the Medical Association. The notice saying 'Doctors without borders' which is a translation of 'Medicine sans Frontieres' makes a cryptic comment about greed and altruism.
