Advocates Against Apathy

BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT

Jessie Schwartz

THE STORY:

Our indifference has surrendered control of our policies to politicians. This apathy is a virus that has muted passions and polluted good intentions.

You know you care. You care that the number of people suffering from hunger is greater than the population of the U.S., Canada and EU combined. You care that the government spends over 22 times our foreign aid budget on military development. You care that over 83% of deaths under the age of 5 are fully preventable.

The Borgen Project makes it incredibly easy to help. They realize that, not only do we each hold the keys to alleviating global poverty and making a meaningful contribution to the lives of millions of individuals, but it is our responsibility to do so. From humble roots, members of the project now act as an army of lobbyists for the world’s underserved populations, raising awareness of the issues and possibilities of progress, teaching basic methods of advocacy to our communities, exposing political obstructions and self interested agendas, and mobilizing society to rally around life saving legislation. In short, the Borgen project tells the nation that there is work to be done and provides a methodical foundation and an incredibly dedicated team to fight against our indifference or feelings of powerlessness.

Donate today to direct our policy development towards eliminating extreme poverty worldwide. 

If you're not able to give financially, look up your local representatives and congressmen http://borgenproject.org/find-phone-numbers-for-congress/ and call in support of poverty alleviating legislation like these http://borgenproject.org/legislation/.
